Christmas makes me feel like selling paradise...because christmas time is when my kids run out of excuses not to visit;
so they do and it is always the same...all touch and no contact.
They are young adults, profesionals and tradesmen....they are "successful" (retch)....and they just don't get it.
They never get it.
When they visit me, they visit 135 ac of permaculture, slow food, transition movement, alternative lifestyle with cutting edge landcare, edible landscape, custom planted forests, oak groves and sacred sites.........throw in; own power, water and food supplies; dams, ponds and animals...cattle, sheep, poultry..........(it is a passion which has been going on for a while).
and they 'see' it all in 5 mins.,,,not a question,,,barely a comment,,,,and what comments there are, are just stupid.
They see nothing!!!!.......we are a fractured family........
with the 'fracture' clearly visible at the point where the consumptive little bastards, fully connected to the money system, just will not role over to green sensibilities.
Which brings me to the point of selling paradise and spending the quid,,,$400k would maybe be enough to set up in Paraguay, si or Eucador......
nah, too far away; I want to see the ocean claim my kids houses.
