The way home #natureisnotaplacetovisititishome “You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes, 
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, 
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting 
over and over announcing your place 
in the family of things.”

I don’t like to talk about Juniper Ridge on my Insty acct, but I’m so proud right now I can’t help it :)  look at our beautiful new packaging! Those wood caps are harvested by our wildcrafting crew and hand-carved in our warehouse. The juice inside the bottle has always been beautiful and real, but I was never very good at the marketing stuff- back in the farmers market days when I was on my own, I used to design my old packaging on my Mac, ha! It looked super hippie, but the quality inside was always there. This transformation in our look happened not because of me, but because of the great folks working here. We had a lot of debate in the beginning about changing our packaging, but in the last couple of months my team came together in the most amazing and transformative way to make this happen, I’m so proud of all of you! Special thanks to my right hand man in all things juniper ridge, backpacking buddy and my wilderness hero @coyotethunder for his stunning artwork, it just sings the places we love and it’s all about the places for us, and thanks to our great design group Indicate Design in SF who brought the creative mojo and worked tirelessly to make this happen. Wow, I have a feeling this is gonna be big for us, stay tuned :)
