SHARE with You!
half year in the desert at 3 moons project,
the challenge of sharing with you! simply living off grid! Towards
comfortable living in this desert! with whatever, bottles, earth bag construction. walls with bamboo weaving, plastic bottles, and grow trees and garden.
invented during these quiet times!
balance, joy !
In the other half year in Brussels, quietly creating drawings and prepare the next season
Mabel, Dan and Natalia came to visit in January! They helped with setting up the hot shower and solar power. Mabel and I worked on a bottle wall together! Lots of fun around the campfire with them! Later in February Ada has come to stay and we’ve been working on irrigation for the garden and cooking yummy meals!
this part of the year adds to my spirit the old stones that tells me of history of this land in my blood! adds the liveliness of people living together, working together, a goal! Even this end of summer 2020, challenged with a world wide pandemic of a virus!
Arrived last evening enforced mask wearers in the bus and lively clusters of unmasked people at sidewalk cafés!
Of course in my mind the awesome near Death Valley desert . Where a few people live among the daily remembrance of once volcanos, slides of lava now hardened and black, Colors of deep sunset and ochre , a once Great Lake with big fish , now tiny in hidden creeks. Some those, comfortable realize the daily is unimportant !
We continue building with earth bags on the current little dome. With wonderful helpers braving the new changes in our world! Here are some photos George becomes part of 3 moons project with his own big metal cage of cinderlite rocks. Niko, Colette, then Sebastien in early March. Sebastien stays for several weeks, building bottle walls, and bamboo fencing. then Sierra and Wenzday, Elizabeth and Josh. JQ. Anna and her brother Mathew come for several days.
Mid June until mid July Steven. Ben and Tyler wonderfully build !!!
