this endeavor has been immensely enriching during my short time with brian on the farm. i feel blessed everyday to share in this experience with him. and although most days i scratch my head in bewilderment over why he has chosen me, a partner with no growing experience, i embrace each new day spent on the farm with joyful enthusiasm and a growing desire to learn. there is no better partner than brian, and nobody i would rather jump into the abyss with than him. his lust for life and alacritous willingness to take on projects of monumental proportions makes him just the person i want to share this life with.
