I am still building my House/Healing Center. The Healing Center will be for the use of Shiatsu Massage, Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Detox and more.
I practice all of the above, mostly outside on nice days.
I also grow, harvest, dry, package Herbal Teas. Play the Didgeridoo and Drum for Healing.
I have no domestic Farm Animals and my Property is dedicated to "LAND FOR WILDLIFE", so you will see and hear lots of wildlife.
