Day One - Empty Space

Today is day one of a 30 day project.

Reclaiming space and establishing freedom. What does it mean to establish freedom within ourselves?
By creating a space to empower ourselves, we can begin to establish freedom and abundance for ourselves and our communities.
Letting go of the unnecessary - possessions, fears, ideas - to create space for radical and innovative solutions. This week, I am clearing out the frivolous and making space.

In seeking to challenge myself, explore venues for communication, and consider ideas on bringing to light a world beyond corporate domination - I am seizing this day.

in the world
is usual today.
This is
the first morning.

Reclaiming Space

In the spirit of revolution, in the spirit of creating, I am reclaiming this space.

Here I will share my perspective on homesteading, healing, creating, community, the world that is possible beyond our crumbling institutions, the world I want to contribute to - the world that I want to reclaim - for good, not evil - for beauty, for love, for all of us.

Sure, I’ve done farming. I’ve envisioned, planned, and planted gardens in three different states in the past year and a half. I've planted, weeded, watered, transplanted, harvested, preserved, fermented, prepared, and shared. I’ve also sought to engage my community in a variety of ways. The way I move through spaces, the ways in which I occupy space. I continue in this quest to re-imagine and re-configure my relationship to my community. I’m realizing that it’s not so much what we do, but how we do it. So, I ask myself, how can I contribute to my community in a meaningful way?
