Tom Theobald and Laura Tyler chat about the old fashioned machinery of the honey house. Tom reveals the heart of his business as a beekeeper.
“Far above two contrails shine, catching the light of a sun now far below the horizon. One points southwest toward Los Angeles, the other northwest toward Seattle. In my mind’s eye I see the chattering travelers, sipping cocktails as dinners are delivered, up near the moon it seems, and I am struck by the gulf which separates us. It is more than altitude and distance, both subtle and profound. They pursue their lives on the edge of the future, a high technology world from which I feel so far removed; I follow a life surviving from a distant past: one man, a few machines, plants, insects, and the vagaries of the seasons. In one brief moment of fading light I feel two disparate worlds brush by each other.”

Tom is such an amazing story teller. It warms my heart to listen to these tales from his life in the Beeyard. How lucky we are to get a glimpse into such an extrordinary journey.
Just finished episodes 10 and 11. Very interesting to listen to the tales of journeys and work.
