I want to talk to you folks about the term “living with less is living with more”.
We all were invited to Desi’s last Friday night for a Bon Voyage party. I will describe it as best as I can…
Her bedroom is an old caravan while the roomy steering area is her lounge. Her kitchen and indoor garden is in a half built greenhouse that houses the caravan as well. Her bathroom and recreational office is outside.
Did I fail to mention that her old VW diesel runs on veggie oil?
Desi is a special girl who grew up with intellectually green parents. She had the right education and the right environment to create a completely self-sustaining home. An artistic home at that.
She even has a water pump for heck sake.
Prior to leaving, Desi put down her chickens. With her own hands. Talk about responsible action.
I really enjoyed the barbeque dinner on an open fire grill, dessert and music in her candlelit greenhouse, the relaxing lay down on her hammock while stargazing and the midnight dip nearby at Crescent Beach.
This is one of the ways to live and enjoy life while not consuming electricity or oil.
We partied like it was 1899.
