It has been a rough couple of years. My writings had, for a time been a daily or at least weekly event. In the last few years I stopped writing entirely and then only writing sporadically. There are numerous reasons for this, which I won’t go into. However, after spending a few days evaluating my life and my passions, I determined that writing, especially writing about homesteading, living simply, and sustainability is a something central to my being. I was re-reading some past writings from 2006. I could hear the passion in my voice in so many areas: living simply and living locally. I could hear that desire to create a future for my children and grandchildren. Although the passion was always here, the eagerness and the desire to share my visions was lost.
I am at a new place now. I had been sucked back into the vortex of the system at large. Recently, my tie to the system has been severed, which allows me to explore my life and passions. I can see the life around me turning back to how I always wished to live. So, we are now re-exploring making and growing our own: cleansers, vegetables, poultry, dairy, and meats. I look forward to sharing these adventures with you.
Everything (or almost everything) that was written previously has been moved over into this new blog. This meant combining 4 blogs into one. Unfortunately, most of the comments were lost in the earliest writings, but the content is there.
