You may start to notice a few changes on this site. I know that this site changed a few times over the years, but these coming changes are reflexing what is currently happening in my life.
I am shifting my career away from research and towards art. I have always wanted to return to what I did before we settled down in the Lower Mainland, that being drawing and painting. This time around however I am going to focus on Early Trades, that being black smithing, glass blowing, and ceramics. I have in my backyard a smokeless sawdust pottery kiln that I build. It has been collecting rust for the last year because I have been busy trying to get out of the rut I’m in with my career as an information broker. It is not that there is enough money in the business, it is that there is not enough requests for research from people that I am willing to work for. I’m an anti-capitalist, well to be more defined, I’m an anti-international-capitalist, nothing wrong with people investing in local economy IMHO.
I have a long time interest in homesteading, and have lived on many different kinds of communes, I’ve even been known to call myself a member of the green party . My goal has always been to buy land and live off the grid, but I have spent to much time trying to provide research to individuals and groups that hope to make the world better. I will still Volunteer my research skills to such groups, but my primary time will be with art leading to self efficiency, I want off the grid, including the John Conner kind.
So in the coming months I will record this trip down the path I have chosen and let you know how it is going.
