For those of you who may not know me, I feel an explanation is in order.
Yes, it's true, after two years and eight months, I left the off-the-grid cabin in the woods on Haida Gwaii. Now, I find myself in a small community in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.
My decision to leave the cabin in the woods was difficult. To live sustainably you must also be able to sustain yourself. For a long time, I was fortunate to be able to sustain my lifestyle through a series of odd jobs and earnings from writing. But things change.
So, here I am. On the grid. A little heartbroken. A little lost. I plan to continue writing this blog from a different perspective, to write of this journey from cabin in the woods to house in the town. Perhaps off the grid can also be a metaphor for a way of being? I hope so.
Thank you for reading.
