New Mexico calling

Update: 10 July 2015

7.8.15 retirement party Royal KonaThere comes a time when we realize we have wandered down some side trail other than the path we had intended to travel.

And such it was.

For the past ten years I have been the Chief Engineer for a large resort on Hawaii Island. I resigned my position the 14th of June. Something I had been thinking about awhile and finally pulled the trigger. The position was no longer in my best interest.

And so

I’m leaving Hawaii and moving back to the land. The Lower Farm in Ledoux, New Mexico is calling.

Hawai’i has been a life changing experience for me. It’s been wonderful living in such a lush tropical environment and through the culture I have learned how aloha is manifested and so much more.

This is how my horizons will change.

I can live with that change. I’m actually looking forward to it.

The Farm has been mostly empty these past years except for my annual retreat and the occasional visitor. There will be a lot of work required to put things in order during the rest of this summer. It has been a dream for many years to establish an organic garden, incorporate some alternative energy projects, maybe raise some bees. In other words pursue living in a sustainable manner. It’s going to be great and I look forward to telling you all about it as things progress.

Saturday morning 7/10/15 the moving company is coming to take all my furniture and household away to be loaded on a ship for the mainland. I’ll be arriving in New Mexico on the 15th and my goods will arrive about five weeks after. The computer is coming down in the morning. Not sure how I’ll communicate for now.

Talk to you on the other side as soon as I am able.

Happy Trails, Dohn

    An adventure ! NM is lovely, perhaps some R&R in all that work ? I very much look forward to reading what you discover, Dohn. Cheers

  3. Dahn, Imagine my surprise and delight in reading your post this morning. I too recently returned to NM and have been investigating many of the Intentional Communities in the area. Next weekend I am attending a writing workshop by HI presenter Jasmine Boswell at Hummingbird Ranch – which I just discovered is near Ledaux!!! I love synchrony. It is the universe letting me know I am connected. My intent is to revive and write about Northern NM’s rio arriba – an enchanted place.

  4. Thank you all so very much. Sending aloha your way and back at you soon.

  5. A pivotal change, Dohn, that I’m sure you have dreamed about for more than a few years. I look forward to experiencing with you the joy and travail ahead.

    Good luck Dohn. Change is an issue in my life right now too and can be such an upheaval, but it sounds like you are very positive about this. Look forward to hearing about the transition!
