I know we've been trying to achieve the homestead dream now for fifteen years, by roughly the same method, and we've hit a wall. We've done an amazing amount, lived the dream in so many ways ... but where does it go?
2013 could be the year for us to get real.
We both work part time, self employed, and now what we need is to get more control over our finances and have a real end in view - we may need to take a step or two back, in order to take a few steps forward.
We need a stake in our home, a way to save and manage our finances, and a plan to move on.
My design work in permaculture, as I study for my diploma, is also leading me down paths I really want to explore - transition, small space living, suburbia/village life - which may be a key part of our own transition.
I don't do change. I really struggle to even imagine clearing out the garage. But it may be time to move on.
Now to see if we can do what we have in mind ...
