Return to Itzapa

Itzapa, Guatemala

I rose early in the morning to begin my journey. I had been back in the highlands of Guatemala for only a short while, having returned after a year of studying permaculture in the United States. Memories of the people living in these mountains and the work they are doing kept me going while I was away. It had taken a couple of weeks to get readjusted to a new community of friends and pace of life, but it felt great to be back.

Living the Question

LL Sum 2008 01

I lived my life as a statement, until I met someone whose life asked a question.

Back when my life was a statement, I appeared to “have it made.” I had a successful career, family, financial security… all that I had been told would bring true happiness. So why wasn’t I truly happy?

Cultivating Hope

Guatemala

Victor's face shone with pride and anticipation. The sun beamed gold beauty on the mountains surrounding him. The lines on his face deepened as he smiled with excitement, watching dozens of uniformed school children hike up a dirt path carrying hoes and machetes to the field where he stood.
