Well, I'll share the secret to my lack of posting. I've been experiencing what it is like to provide for our needs, and manage an off farm job at the same time. These two purposes seem to collide with opposite objectives. It is very wearisome. I grow tired of it and long for a change.
I really love the self-sufficient way of life. It is fulfilling and challenging at the same time. It makes one be accountable. There is no way to cheat or steal from it. It makes you look at life, and focus on what is important.
In the short time we have been working at becoming self-sufficient, it has brought me face to face with a strong desire to never return to the way I lived before. This way of life, which one must provide as much as possible for themselves, is real. There is nothing phony about it.
Each day, outside of my world here, society deepens itself in destruction. Corruption abounds further. I experience more and more people acting outwardly in anger and hate. Relationships with people are surface. No one dares to be transparent. People are out of touch with themselves as well as their surroundings. It is a strange world to me anymore.

As I have been able to disconnect from the ways of society, my life here, on this small piece of land has become sweeter. In this new routine of living, I no longer seek after that missing link that used to drive me each day.
I rejoice having found this new freedom. A freedom to live a way of life, that many in society deem as lowly and too much work.
Enjoy the day!
