Follow me through a journey into self and partake in the many trials and tribulations of yurt life completely off the grid. This life that I've chosen is a frugal life learning as I go. I've learned that trusting my heart and spending time listening to the land is the best way to learn. We spend our lives trying to figure out how we can fit nature into our lives when we should be walking humbled into nature to ask how we can fit in with her.

Tonight I find myself in a place of comfort and warmth, a place that makes me proud of my desicions and moral beliefs, a place where I feel I can make a difference, a place I call home.

I've just returned from visiting friends in Kingston who have just recently built their own yurt and off grid systems. Almost 3 years ago when they first visited me here in my then meagerly appointed yurt, I never thought that they would relocate their entire family (four young girls) to an off grid yurt of their own in the north of Kingston, but by god they've done it. I've got to see this for myself. My drive east along the 401 found my mind racing faster than I could drive, thoughts of their experiences, their reasons, their transformations, their systems. I've found someone who finally understands...or do they?

Look how much things have changed. Just a short year ago I had no internet connection to stay in touch, no decent television to keep me company, no iPod to sing to me...how did I ever manage. Last night I decided to spend the night wrapped in a blanket with the warm glow of the woodstove keeping my soul warm and a blank stare on my face as I gazed deep into the abyss of my television. From time to time I would log into my Facebook account to see my news feed, what a great way to kill a night and relax...or so I thought. Well, at about 10:00pm I unglued myself from the couch and slumbered over to turn the television off, load up the woodstove and turn in for the night. That's when it hit. Listen to all I've been missing. The Great Horned Owls were calling, the rain gently hitting the roof...what was that? A deer was walking through the forest with its feet crunching through the last of the snow. I've just spent three hours on the couch, trying to relax, glued to the television when as soon as I turned it off, the forest was alive all around me. I had missed so much. As I laid back in bed I was now more relaxed listening to the calming sounds of the evening forest than three hours of watching mindless television.

Ground Breaking of Walden Pond PDF Print E-mail

Ground breaking for the construction of Walden Pond(a name that was suggested by a Laurier professor) began this week on the morning of December 03rd.  I was extremely excited to see the arrival of the excavator and the bulldozer, but also a little nervous that I was going against my original promise to myself, that I wouldn't alter the land in any drastic way. I do believe a bull dozer and an excavator is rather drastic measure. I do however see the merits in the construction as this is a joint project with funding help through the Brant Resource Stewardship Network, that this will greatly improve the natural environment and help to improve the overall wildlife habitat and diversity.  I was only planning on a small pond as the clay was needed for the construction of the grass waterway, but when the guys started digging, this has turned into a 300' long giant. There's no doubt in my mind that this will do wonders for wildlife diversity on the property, I just need to keep all in check to make sure that my once peaceful oasis doesn't turn into a three ring circus.
