Wow, where to begin! I am utterly overwhelmed be the amount of breathtakingly beautiful people on this forum....
Well, why am I here? So, ok, I want alot of things. In what order they occur in is not that important. The ultimate goal is finding land I resonate with, that I am to work and play with :) Right now, after traveling so many places in the US, I'm feeling like it's probably Louisiana.
I am obsessed with tropical food. I hear Louisiana is a good place for that. I don't want to settle in Florida because of sea levels. I want to grow mushrooms, have pet chickens, have some bees, make honey perhaps, have some fields. Thing is I am not well endowed in the financial sector at this time but I have lots of passion, vision, heart, clear mind, clear conscious, drive, energy and desire to create haha. I've been working on farms on and off this year and about a decade ago for 2 years. I really want to create a community center, where I can do spiritual healing for others, have concerts, groups, and give food to lower income people. Perhaps also cabins, spa and a restaurant in the more far future. Yea, like I said lots of things.
So I'm looking for a really close friend and/or life partner to build with. I'm also looking for friends in this journey of life and people to co-create with!
If you know of any farms that already exist that would be fun and educational (cuz I'm still learning) in Louisiana, lemme know.... I really love the general area of northeast Kansas, on down to east coast of Texas, to New Orleans up to northeast Arkansas, if you imagine a rectangle like thing, so if you want to suggest some farms to go to before this vision begins to coalesce more, I would love that too. I'm open to manifesting all kinds of new relationships. Perhaps you wanna go to some farms in the area I mentioned and we can ride together. Perhaps you are already there and we can meet up.
I'm a rare bird. I've had alot of unusual, spontaneous spiritual experiences. I am a healer, which means I am intuitive, sensitive and been working on my internal stuff nonstop since I can remember. I'm an artist, going to pick up painting again when I get settled again. I love working with plant medicine of all kinds. I can't live without music and dancing. My music taste is all over the map, ambient, new age, iron and wine, dead can dance, nine inch nails, 80s haha... I take my health and health eating/living seriously. I'm an introvert and don't talk much except when you get me a subject I'm passionate about. Sometimes, my ghetto side comes out. I have a goth underbelly. I'm a straight shooter, don't take no bullshit from no one type of person. I've lived a different kind of hermit like life, traveling about. I remember times living as a taoist monk in the mountains. Oh to be there again, except with tropical fruit ;)
Looking forward to the place where I can sink in and settle really. Having been a mostly quiet, to myself person, I am not wanting that lifestyle anymore. I want to grow food, with friends, in the country. I can't do city life, even if the city isn't that big haha My fairy nature is the best part of me. But that doesn't mean I don't like to get shit done, I'm industrious, love fixing shit and if I can, do it for myself. I tend to be a gentle person until we get into topics like colonialism, racism, and religious oppression. I refuse to be another mouth/mind for the state.
Think that's enough, covered as much as I need to, I think. If you got this far, I commend you! haha

PS Right now I'm in South Carolina near Charleston on a farm.... :)

Seeing this I right away thought of my Facebook friend, Jacquelyn Tripp, who is starting a homestead and harboring thoughts about community near Minden, LA.  Might be a good friend and collaborator and has long background in the region you're interested in. She's Christian but NOT oppressively so, and I think you might share some of your other interests in common.  You can find her directly, or find me and look for her in my friends....

Hello, saw your post and registered for Permies! Lol
Im in the High country of Arizona with 4 seasons on a small property with 5 acres. You seem very like minded in your outlook and direction your heading. Im 37, but a child at heart and I'm looking to find someone who is complimentary not contradictory, with similar interests to share and grow with. If you would like to get to know each other, that would be great. Happy holidays. Astro

Greetings and Salutations,
I found your post utterly captivating and uniquely timely, potentially cosmically so if our paths collide. I'm a 28 year old man living in Northeast Pennsylvania currently on grid working as a veterinary technician. I have been waiting for the spring to do exactly that which you so eloquently described above. I have homesteading skills and supplies to contribute and I wanna raise GOATS (like seriously I can't wait to raise goats..). I've visited a few small scale ecovillage/earths type communities for several extended stays and gathered practical permaculture knowledge from every source in print or code. I'd love to chat soon. You can email me at cory.shires@gmail.com if you prefer.

Hello Ahia!

My name is Aaron and I just read your post and I'm thinking we should connect.  I'm 35 and I've been farming in South Louisiana (real Cajun country) for quite a few years but currently I'm out on the West Coast doing the same.  My email is fromenthal@gmail.com and you can find me on Insta as well.

Hope you're doing good and safe travels!

-Aaron

Hi Ahia!
What a captivating post!  Have you thought of PANAMA? We're starting an ecovillage here and from your post it might be up your alley.  (Also you Aaron & Cory)

I'm totally new here on permies (like today) so you'll excuse the lack of info in my profile, please.  Anyhow, our website is http://8thLifePanama.org.  Please reach out if you might be interested in the project.

Peace & love,
Rebecca
