Coast to Coast

Hey there I’m Priscilla. It’s unreal how much I’ve accomplished in the few years I’ve been at Earthlinks. I’m not saying that I’m surprised at how much I’ve achieved, being awesome is just part of the package. I  think being in a community like Earthlinks makes you want to achieve more, strive for more out of life. That’s the incredible thing  when you’re around people who support and believe in you; the things you can do are endless. I was 17 when I first took off from home with a biker guy to travel cross-country. We went from my hometown Spokane, Washington, and spent  about 2 years on...

Adventurer finds his way home

My name is Paul. I was born and raised in Golden, Colorado. I have seen EarthLinks grow in amazing ways. From the St. Francis location to the time we were on Larimer St, and now to see it in Sun Valley on 13th and Decatur. I walk out to our garden sometimes and think about how Earthlinks is like afamily to me through thick and thin. I remember when Golden was just a small American mid west town, where everyone knew everybody’s business. I loved my town and the gorgeous views of Lookout Mountain right from my yard. As nice as that was, I knew I always craved more. Right out of high...

Swarm Season

Swarm Season

     As we move into summer we are coming to the end of the bee swarm season. This is a very exciting time of year at EarthLinks. Swarm season refers to a period of time that usually lasts a few weeks during mid-spring. During this time, strong, healthy beehives have a tendency to produce a second queen and eventually a large portion of the hive will suddenly depart with the additional queen to start a new hive at a new location. If you have never seen a swarm of bees before, the first time can be a frightening experience. When a honey bee swarm emerges from their hive the sheer number of...

Physical Space: A Day in the Storage Unit

Physical Space: A Day in the Storage Unit

I recently spent five hours with a participant sorting through her neglected storage unit. She has experienced the complexities of homelessness for the last two years, and luckily obtained transitional housing last November. I joyfully moved her in, but reserved my gregarious right because the transition was not all glory for her. It’s hard work to sleep in a room full of bunk beds and suddenly have your own. I’ve seen her nearly every week since and the way she lights up when flowers in the EarthLinks garden arch at indescribable angles. Yet, fear incapacitates her. She lost...
