I live in Seattle. I like to cook, garden, grow food, and commune with my critters. I work-but would rather not (at least not for someone else). Lately I’ve become more and more obsessed with trying to eek out every ounce of self-sufficiency from our little home and square of dirt that I can. So far so good.
I dream about land in the country but really do like being able to go to a show in the city without a 2 hour drive. I’m conflicted. I like smart people who have a passion for something and am finding they are increasingly rare. I’m an atheist and at heart an anarchist - but I will still get fired up about the state of politics and our country.
This blog is mostly about cataloging our life here. Recording the garden goings on, meals cooked and animal antics. But it is also occasionally political, because I don’t think you can cordon life off into personal/political spheres. It is all intertwined and if you don’t see the connections, then you’re not thinking hard enough.
