“I’m here,” said Joey.

i’m here


to write

to farm

to spin yarn

to pick fruit

to not follow suit

to analogize

to proselytize

to take my morning shot of Yeezus

and play imaginary tennis in the orchard

to be still

to burn, flex, and rest

to mine time

to sit on the dock of Highway 228

breathing a concoction of oxygen and carbon

to tap in

to tap out

to plow the page with ancient symbols

the clouds are moving fast

i’m here

and that’s exciting.


Current Resident: Emma Bernsohn

ImageHi, I’m a designer from Oakland, California who has the great pleasure of making Oregon Country Farm my home for six weeks. I first met Serah when we studied at CCA together a number of years ago. Since then I’ve worked in design studios in the Bay Area. Over the last months I’ve felt a need to reconnect with my craft, particularly design, writing, and photography. So, here I am, the third musketeer on the filbert farm. Although the weather has been hot, and the days can feel long, working outdoors and getting my hands dirty is a welcome change from my life behind a computer. My personal work seems to morph and change regularly, similar to the greens in the raised beds and the blackberries growing on their vines. I am capturing my residency through photography and writing at and invite you to follow as the adventure continues.
