Hello everyone - it has been a long trip ‘round and the path has led back here - again!

For those who have been with Permies for a while you may remember my previous farmlette out in the country - that was sold during a divorce ( and all of the plants/trees bulldozed by the disgruntled ex).

I have since purchased an urban lot and house in town, remarried, retired and, circumstances have transpired that now allow me to devoted ALL of my time to Permaculture, Art, and Cycling - Yay!!!

The Urban Permaculture Project is on year three here in town.  Because it is permaculture it is a slow process - the soil here is/was absolute crap - decades of weed and feed lawn. I have to keep reminding myself that it took eight years to get rich black living earth at my previous place.  But it is happening here, plants are starting to thrive and I am starting to see worms when I root around in the soil.

J Jacildone Gallery - jacildone is my new last name - pronounced Hassle - Doe - Knee.  Art is in full swing and I am enjoying the integration of nature and art as I learn more about creating both.

I have been in and out of permies quite a bit over the last few years as my life path has taken me in a lot of interesting and totally unplanned directions.  Each time I come back this place has gotten bigger and there are so many new people, processes and procedures.  I am eager to learn about all of them.  Such growth simply means that the permie word is spreading ….and that is always a good thing.

I'm glad to have you back Jeanine.  I look forward to seeing what you're up to as of late.  All new circumstances... so a new opportunity to learn, experiment and share.  I hope you share as much of your wisdom as you can.  Thank you for coming back.

Sorry you went through a divorce and the bitterness of your ex. My ex-wife did not have a bulldozer (I own that), but I did endure her wrath and resentment so I do empathize with you. Like you I am happily remarried and love her dearly! (Its been 7 years now).

I was not here when you were here, but relate by being retired and farm full time.

Please do not take this as an affront, but thank you so much for doing the pronunciation of your name. I would have never derived the sound from the spelling, but I am just an old dumb sheep farmer too. It really helps because there is nothing worse then saying a persons name wrong...so impersonal, and I am not like that at all.

I wish you the best, and that you find Permis still comforting, rewarding, and encouraging.
 
Hey cool! They got a blimp! But I have a tiny ad:
