Lately I've really just had the desire to reconnect with the earth and live symbiotically with the land...sort of like a modern monk...chopping wood, carrying water.
I'm moving toward being the change I want to see in the world but feel disheartened by what I see at times. Wal-mart, fast food, wastefulness and people living like robots (going to work every day at some insurance company in their giant SUV that carries exactly one person on a 30-mile commute each way)...sigh.
I feel like the main "system" we're living in right now is so uninspiring. I'm about to make huge changes in my way of living. Permaculture, humanure, preserving food, barter, sharing big meals with friends, sustainable shelter, and living with as little money as possible are all inspiring concepts to me and what I'm moving toward.
I've been headed down this road in my head for a while, but it's at the point where I'm making larger shifts toward my desires - I'm looking for a plot of land right now to begin the next leg of my journey.
