(title unknown)

Sometimes I wish I could raise my [potential] kids in this era. Or even further back, when America was brand new. It's only slightly idealistic: pounding out a living from the new, hard ground; looking across open plains at nothing but your own land, covered in crops on a good year, looking through tears at an empty field on a bad one; children growing up with a knowledge of the difference between "want," and "need"; seeing God's wild and glorious Creation, yet untainted by concrete roads and steel buildings.

I'm a city girl, usually. But sometimes, the challenge of starting with something new in the middle of nowhere with almost nothing gets to my heart. There wouldn't be internet, there would be true adventure. No luxury, but more of a need to trust God and really be thankful for the things I did have.

Besides, instant gratification is overrated.

who i am!

Tiph used to be this weird hippie chick who sewed things and drank tea and rode bikes and wrote silly things. Then, college came along, and now she's this weird hippie chick with math in her brain and notebooks full of indefinite integrals. And hardly any time to write. This is her space. Thankfully, space is a vacuum and any complaints you may have cannot be heard.
