Brown study is an antiquated word for reverie, meditation, musings — being lost in a daydream.
What if the stories of those visions were told?
Brownstory was conceived before Mainframe. Rachel was writing acoustic Psalm-inspired songs, Noah was writing on mandolin, and Drew had revived his violin. We played our unplugged daydream songs in a coffeeshop or two, in the urban metropolis of East Asia which was our home.
Then the four of us made a bold move: forsaking the city smog, we planted our young families in a remote, green, and beautiful mountainous village. Agrarian ways–cyclical, rhythmic, laborious, miraculous, unpredictable but hopeful, communal–became a lived metaphor for our life in Jesus.
Devastatingly, our dreams were uprooted before they bloomed, and we lost our homes, friends, plans, and parts of our identity and calling.
Now we are replanting.
