Experiences, not things

I’ve been busy setting the ball rolling for the big build next year. A few facebook posts, some emails, catching up with people who have expressed an interest in being part of the project to give them a heads up that it is happening. I’ve written an update for the WWOOFing newsletter and am very excited at the prospect of a group of very close friends making it up here next year to join in.

I was reading an article on the Tiny House movement earlier which had a lovely quote:

People would rather have experiences than things

This has been something I have believed for a very long time – in summing up a day, a week, a year, a life it is never the stuff accumulated which makes it count, but the memories – the what you did not the what you had.

We have been so pleased to have such a great first response to our plans for next year – it’s been raining pretty much non stop since we first posted about it last week so we have yet to translate our own enthusiasm into the first breaking ground on the house plot clearing the site but hopefully by the end of this week we will have some pictures to share of the actual location looking like the start of something exciting rather than just an untamed corner of the croft.
