|happy living free|
Monday again, it has been a full on activity week, and a week of putting myself out there...
For many years I have moved around Australia, India and the world in search of a space that would claim me, that would whisper a welcoming "you're home now!" It hasn't come along yet and I am a bit sick of waiting.

There is strong Gypsy energy in me and well… my husband is a nomad by tribe. So happily we move as soon as that north wind blows. Our 2 year family plan is based on which country, state or town would be nice to discover next.
We dream of a Tipi community and a larger bus (with stained glass windows and a wood fire). I plan my travels and my next escape with beauty and style.
But really, yes really! I just would like another year or two here, building community, friendship, and skills… growing my own food making my own stuff, hanging out with the children and the animals that depend on me or inspire me. Giving all my ideas a chance to blossom and be fruitful. It’s funny you know, even saying this feels like I am breaking some gypsy code of conduct…
It's interesting isn't it, the limitations we put on ourselves!
In my attempt to embrace this anchored stage, I have been directing my energy into creative homesteading and community building.

This week has seen some of my projects initiated, yesterday was the first meeting of our crafting group, and today was the first of many horse riding lessons for my daughter.
I have a 6 month plan for my garden, and a determination to be a bee keeper (asap), my cow is one month away from calving, and I have a monthly permaculture group and community food swap meeting coming up.
I'm able to follow through with my ideas... What a high!
I am starting to enjoy this break from moving around, so much so, that staying put might become a habit……and for the first time that’s OK.
Steady days are here!
for awhile anyway!
