New Adventure, New Blog
A few weeks ago, I had a life-changing conversation with two of my kids, which has resulted in a new direction for me: I'm going to build an off-grid house with my own hands (and my kids' hands, and whoever else wants to help).
It wasn't until after this conversation that it occurred to me what an appropriate project this is for the "green" year that I'm in. Not just because of the association of green with environmental sustainability, but also because of it being the color of the heart chakra, and this is a project very much from my heart. I've wanted to do this for years, and for a variety of reasons, now is the time.
I was originally thinking I would blog about this journey here, but soon realized it needs its own space, so I have started a new blog called Home Sweet Hive, and just published my first post. In building a new physical structure, I will be simultaneously build a virtual structure for it. I hope you'll check it out.
