a great heart must fly

our dear Katie lived on the farm with us for two and a half years.
she is a beautiful light.
as she worked her way though graduate school we shared an
incredible life here. she taught so much. she gave so much.
and she was just so much fun to be with!
we sheared, we hayed, we detangled skeins, we dyed and we dyed laughing.
and what she gave to our flock was unmeasured.
Katie is in the air tonight somewhere over the Atlantic
on her way to a new adventure in Rwanda, Africa 
where she will give her
knowledge to a noble cause.
i have a huge lump in my throat.
go Katie, our great heart! we miss you.
