You seem to have a plan now, but if it doesn't pan out, maybe we should stay in touch...?

     We are working to build a home, sanctuary, food forest, community arts and cultural center here in Western Washington. The truth is, I can't do it alone, and I wouldn't want to even if I could.
     For the past three years I have been observing the land, learning the  plants, the animals, and the flow of energies. I have been engaging with community, participating in various permaculture and artistic groups and events. I just began living here, on the land, 8 months ago.
     It is partially forested, partially cleared. We have a south facing slope and two seasonal streams. There are epic waterfalls nearby. We are an hour from the ocean and even less to the mountains.
    There are many people involved and interested in this, but I am currently the only person living here. This movement is funded by a combination of our businesses, marketing our services: carpentry, landscape/design, tree service, etc, and community support. So there are work opportunities and infinite opportunity to create more. Literally, the sky is the limit!
    I think it is finally ready for other people to begin living here. The land is currently OFF-GRID, meaning there is no electricity, internet, etc. We have a strong community base with lots of support, so we have places to do laundry, shower, use the internet, etc. Things are changing every day. It is constantly becoming more beautiful. We manifest what we want and will.
    Over the past couple years, I have built great relationships with my neighbors, (which makes a world of difference). The past few months, we have been able to begin hosting small permaculture and arts events. Through music, dance, story telling, sharing art and culture, we are creating traditions and creating new culture. Momentum is building steadily.
     More than just a Sanctuary, community center, and work of art,  I want to build a home and find someone to share it all with.
    Meditation, yoga, astronomy, music, permaculture, art, healing, harmony, community, learning, sharing, martial arts, and culture are the current energies here, with nature/all life held in sacred reverence. Constantly evolving.
     I wouldn't think of assuming what kind of woman or relationship would be a good fit, only that I am open to what the universe reveals. My isolation and loneliness have served as great teachers and inspiration, and now thier time has passed..... My life is so different from the main stream, that I wonder if this doesn't all sound like insanity. Lmao.
              Here goes.......
