Starting over

05 Jul

I found this article recently and it got me thinking. Actually, it doesn’t do much to get me thinking of our dream. A while back, Kippy and Jaime wanted me to talk about my perfect home. Then just recently, someone mentioned being envious of a life of ease. I often say "I’m jealous" and you’ll usually find it’s relating to a certain way of life… a life we’d love to live again, a truly simple life.

Second Act

"We embark on a career path or a job before we really know ourselves at a very early age, but I think we’re still a work in progress and over the course of your life you can stitch together a quilt of what you want to be and who you want to be." Lisa Schwartz

Now, if I were envious of a lifestyle, it’s the one this lady has built for herself. That is a dream!

A couple more videos of people starting over and fulfilling a dream… truly inspirational! I’ve linked to the videos, so I don’t overload this page for those with slow connections:

farm dream 2
Gypsy (back), Vilkas (left) and Noble (front right), our 3 Muskateers. Gypsy was the older, sensible one, who kept the brats in check. To the left was the raspberry patch – wild and thorny, but a thrill to harvest. Through the gateway behind them was the stand of mulberry trees, kids’ paradise, and beyond that, the stream. The dogs were lying under the pretty, but infernal Tibouchina tree – the leaves, when dry, make excellent dye *sigh* It never comes out!

For those new to my list or those who missed the original post, this blog speaks about the life we came from, which is poles apart from the life we’re in now. We’ll have that again : )

Last night, Tat and I were chatting. A possible hermitage came up, but she’s not the hermit type, being gregarious and all that. We settled on farming with goats, who are pretty cool critters, with Jurgis taken along as slave labour, something he seems to thrive on. Ah… now there’s a life, hm?
