Letter: Vera Johnson and Village Green Perennial Nursery coming to the end point

Dear Editor,
Here’s an update on my story since you published it at the end of April.


The money for arrears is due by May 26th to cancel thel auction scheduled for June 17. I'm meeting with my real estate agent soon. Listing houses Tuesday. I finally got the amount to reinstate my loan with Ditech

It's big numbers

I've cobbled together the money from generous private lenders but any contributions
would be helpful.

I want a hammock. To rest in. For a week. Maybe daily for a month.

The impact this has had on me??? It's cost me my joy and peace. This took on a life of its own. Became my focus.

I've put so much into making it work that I stopped enjoying it for quite sometime.

Setting goals to create something I wanted that just couldn't come together.

I've learned you can't stay attached to potential.

I always wanted this place to be a place where people come together to celebrate, learn, enjoy and create. And it has been to a degree...I had such hope and vision for this place. It's taught me to open up and look elsewhere to create it. There's plenty of other places this could work.
I can build it exactly as I want it, elsewhere. And I will...after I rest for awhile.
In my hammock.

I'm looking at property in port Townsend. Small house/cabin/yurt. Partially off grid. Undecided as of yet.

A retreat center with cabins, creative space and maybe even weddings.
But I have a book to write and I need quiet to accomplish that, I do know.

I've learned if I let go of what doesn't work, I can make room for what does.

Financially it's cost me quite a bit. Emotionally it's toughened me up.

I've discovered my TRUE grit here. And Love blossomed here. Essence. Of self.

Thank you to everyone for holding me while I learned that.
