I don’t just have a dream; I will legitimately build my own house someday using reclaimed and natural materials and my Americorps acquired chainsaw skills. I want to travel and learn more about cobb, strawbale, stacked stone foundations and living roofs. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being cozy and having running water, it’s just going to be part of a greywater system and probably involve composting. And goats.
I probably can’t be with someone who is super religious. Nature is my religion (in a non tree-worshipping way). I get my universal fuzzies while backpacking and being outdoors. Serious ceremonial things make me giggle. I'm fine if a bigger picture gives you comfort, I'm not fine if it is your way or the highway.
