What I’m Doing Right Now

I’m in Lithuania right taking care of paper work and finishing up the last stage of actually buying my land. Sadly, I’ve made little time to write. Working my old job as a developer in Hamburg these past few months has consumed my mind, leaving me feeling too busy to do the things I love most – writing and drawing, but a short trip to the country side, where my home will be fills me with the renewed sense that this is where I want to be right now. Inside I’m overflowing with excitement for this Spring when I return from Hamburg to start this new chapter.

Down there is where I hope to soon call home!

At the same time, I’m overwhelmed with uncertainties about the future. I have no idea about much of what I’m doing because – “How do you find out what you don’t know to find out about?” (If you know something, I’m open to ideas). Right now, here’s the plan:

Come Spring, I’m coming by bike to a piece of land that hasn’t been touched in 25+ years and I’m going to going to live there in a tent, until I find something more durable. I can’t build anything permanent until after the first year, because of permits and it would be stupid to do so without knowing the land (anyone know anything about living in shipping containers, yurts, or buses?) In the mean time I plan time to start a garden to feed myself and enjoy summer. My long term plan is to start a food forest, build my own house, and live off grid.

If anyone wants to come visit me in Lithuania this summer, I can’t promise I’ll be able to feed or house you, but I promise you won’t starve or freeze 😀
