Yes, I still love local food, local farms, and my wonderful home base and warm community here on Vancouver Island. But life has a way of throwing wrenches in one’s proverbial works, which is exactly what happened to me.
I was a farmer for a while. I never ate better and learned a great deal about food, farming, our industrialized food system, and food activists and committed food consumers who are working hard to produce healthy food sustainably. Yes, for a while there it was all about food, food, food!
But then some things happened (watch the blog – I’ll backtrack and fill in the gaps) and I realized I am as much a traveller, writer, performer, adventurer and curious spirit as ever I have been and that for various reasons the farm was not the way forward for me. It has been a fascinating, heartbreaking, joyous journey and soon to be the subject of a book (manuscript in progress). I thought about just deleting this website and blog and then I thought better of it. Sometimes things just don’t go as planned and that isn’t always a bad thing. So, with a new header and fresh resolve, I’m picking up the blog again and resuming the online telling of my ongoing journey.
