Up on the olive green mountain, is a very special little eco-house! My friend Alan built it last year, using straw bales and cob, with a reciprocal roof. It took many months to complete, because of all the factors that go into building a structure straight from nature. The months of intense summer heat in Italy, make working long hours impossible - you have to start early and you have to have a long break in between - and you generally finish the day quite late .. after which you sleep.
Today I head for Italy, to visit a good friend living high on an olive-tree hillside, fully off-grid. His domain is just outside the medieval town of Ceriana. There is no wi-fi up there, so I am unplugging for a full week of natural connection .. earthing,cobbing, camp-fireing, laughing and hanging out under the autumn stars ..
My DREAM is to live on the earth in a way that deeply nourishes and satisfies my SOUL - living SIMPLY and being FULLY who I AM.
This blog is my virtual space for creating that dream - a place where inspiration, ideas, quotes, articles and photo's belonging to that dream, are kept close. It is also a personal space for recording the most important moments of this life-long journey.
