Default New here from Oregon

I am a mother of five, multi-medium artist. I play a bit at writing, and am obsessed with the history of homemaking and preindustrial life.

I've been teaching myself how to be self-sufficient for the last ten years, gaining all my knowledge through research and books. I can say, all this time later, I now have the proper character to understand and incorporate the knowledge I've gained, whereas before seemed to be spent grooming the right attitude inside myself. I am ready, finally, to do instead of just dream.

Oh, gosh, it's nice to be able to respond. I had almost given up! For some reason, the system wouldn't allow it. At any rate, thank you all for the wonderful welcome! I hadn't even realized there were responses.

To reply to bookwormom, I am still searching for some land. Most of what is out there is too close to the city, not nearly enough land, or is absent of water/water rites. It's a bummer, but I am undeterred. It will happen! In the meantime, I've got a garden, chickens and the ability to test my resolve through experience.
