At 47 I’m old I guess, in technology-years anyway. I was around for the early days of blogging… 10 or so (pre-facebook-era) glorious years when strangers shared their thoughts and solicited sound advice from others. Real people (not bots) would read your wordy post and give you a thoughtful paragraph or two in response. Really! Now we are down to phrases and pictures. Our attention spans have been trained smaller and smaller. Anyway, here at least, I may try to return to a semblance of the glorious blogging days and spout out my often muddled thoughts.
A little bit about me…
The stats: Married, 47, have 2 grown kids, and recently moved several states away from my former life and family.
Homesteading is the goal. It’s funny because, it’s been my goal for so many years and now all of a sudden (post-c19) it seems half the world wants to do the same. I say more power to us!
After many, many years of getting debt free and allowing my children to sprout & grow their wings of independence, my husband and I moved to his home state of Virginia, in the Appalachians, and bought land so we could build a sustainable lifestyle. We intend to live as freely as we can and to stand our ground against a world that wants to assimilate us into their technocratic grip. We will not comply. In fact, we plan to be a part of the solution.
Our goals are to be a part of the local food movement, homesteading mini-farmers. It seems to me that, with so many people uprooting and moving to rural areas, there is a small army of such people. We will join together in new ways and create solutions to subverted supply chain issues. I’m super excited about all that stands before us. There is a revolution of rural living underway, and I am proud to be part of it.Recommended3 recommendationsPublished in
