I believe that I am one of the lucky people who live in a special place in the landscape. I purchased my farm many years ago in a desperate and degraded state and have transformed it into an arcadia. The challenge is to now make a responsible living from the land and I hope to do so by thinning out my abundant forests and selling the wood as boards. Wood is a most wonderful and beautiful product and I try to use it where ever I can and this is my project here.
I believe in reverence to Nature and is what we need to work with to save us humans and the planet. Consequently I lead a rustic life where Nature is greatly appreciated.
I like visitors who are broadminded and who have a respect for Nature. I also like people who are creative and I'd welcome anyone who has some project like writing or art that they would like to work on or someone who just wants to commune with Nature. Maybe they could camp in the jungle cave for a night or my small hut. l have even written a manuscript about my life and place here which I have called, "by the grace of the Pine tree". lf you would like to see some more photos, you are welcome to have a look on my Facebook page.
