Instinctively Committing To The Foreverness Of The Purchase

Progress takes time, such a profound cliche and fairly topical with all of us still anxiously observing how painstakingly slow things unfold while the counting of votes proceeds, when we were hoping for a quick and total fix of overdue unfairness, so this is just me throwing another clincher, like one would throw a handful of spaghetti against the wall to see what will stick, not the debris usually, hopefully, but the ready to digest part of the prepared dish, cooked to perfection.
My comprehension of something as abstract as the ticking of a clock and the influence the elusive driving force behind it has on my day to day life has never been properly aligned with reality, which pictures me impatient, I guess, an obnoxious quality for someone with an equally strong devotion for impossible time-consuming jobs.

The Virginia Creeper plants or five-leaved ivy we planted against the North East wall of the cottage earlier this year, have grown amazingly fast through summer and did already, in their first autumn, offer the beautiful discoloration into the forceful red us leaf peepers get all excited about, but are long off from portraying the vision I have in my mind for them.

Trying to make ones life sustainable is more than a personal choice and almost automatically leads to a multitude of decisions you have never even thought of before. On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.

We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.

Can we change the world through food? We believe we can and we support Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries. Together we defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and the transfer of traditional knowledge and skills.
