I saw this on a girl’s shirt and thought solid advice.
Left turn onto some Mother Nature. It is amazing how fresh air and space help clear out the clutter of your mind.
The hardest thing was getting the courage to start attempting to follow my dream. Last year I turned 38 and decided that I either had to start looking for land or stop talking about looking for land. I started in August and was the owner of 23 acres at the end of November.
There were so many magical moments in the process that I believe there is no where else in the world that I am supposed to be.
I put in my offer on Oct 4, 2013. I went in $18,500.00 under the list price.
On Oct 5, 2013 I crashed Nuit Blanche with my first guerrilla art experiment. I wanted to talk to Canadians about the Idle No More movement and Stephen Harper’s horrible environmental policies.
On Oct 8, 2013 they came back and accepted my offer. I think it was a karmic thank you for taking a vocal and public stand on what is happening to Canada under Harper.
The woman I bought the land from was 92 years old and wrapping up all of her business. She was also married to James Cooper. I don’t think it is a fluke that the North and West border of my land is a public access trail that he donated.
I am going to build on what he started.
