Good to hear this thread has helped. Taking up poetry sounds amazing. I just started an art class and although I didn't make it this week, I am finding a lot of benefit from it and one benefit I didn't expect to find ~ I am finding that I am learning the art of conversation or the art of keeping my mouth shut and not being so dominant, which can often end conversations! So these things can sometimes have benefits we weren't expecting. Going into the woods for a week sounds like heaven! :-) my idea of heaven anyway. Part of my future plan is to live in a converted van in nature. Let us know how you get on with any changes that you are making.
But I hope you will find support and some solace and comfort here.....it is tough...but you’re not along here x
I’m off to a shepherds hut or Croft somewhere remote...I will be crazy hermit lady......I will be local legend.....don’t go into the wood that Aspie wood lives there! ....... she’s weird and miswired.... it might be catching! Lol
Agree just being alone in the woods watching real natural life go about it’s business has always been something I dreamt of, BlueRay I to always fancied living in a converted van or bus,free to travel and live a life of working to live,,,,not living to work, payment in food or enough money just to survive.
Ellie there is a lady in wales who lives on a farm,she allows one or two to just live there,tents,self built shacks, it was on a living wild series by Ben fogle. Sounds heaven,she is building huts for visitors, I will race you there Lol.
Sorry....didn’t catch what you said.....byeeeeeeeeeeeee!
