I yearn for a rural lifestyle, getting earth under my fingernails and putting funny-looking delicious veg straight from the earth onto the table. I'd like to get my honey from bee hives rather than squeezy bottles, my milk, yoghurt and cheese from a goat rather than plastic packets that I throw away.
I also love my laptop, my work, my feeling of being plugged into the city.
I am trying to find my way towards a lifestyle that blends self sufficiency with participation in the formal economy. The blog comes with me all the way.
I'm an explorer in residence, hunting for fun; I'm a singer finding new (old) ways to be so; I'm trying to figure out how to live what I call a blended lifestyle, with one hand on the laptop and the other on the spade - and in recent months I've become an obsessive blogger on all of it.
