Well, Hello! It has been a few years and a challenging few years for all at that.
I am still making art, although recently have been busy with yet another move. So, in a nutshell to recap, I have divorced after 35 years of marriage. I moved to Astoria, OR and then to Freeland, WA, on Whidbey Island. I had to move after a couple of months due to the Landlord selling the house so then moved to Langley, WA, where I was for the past year until this month.
While I continued to work on my art, I also have been navigating the ins and outs of daily life on my own, as well as through this pandemic. While hunkering down, I completed a year-long Permaculture Certification course through Geoff Lawton's Permaculture Research Institute.
I have made a major shift in my life to concentrate on Permaculture, sustainable, and regenerative living. The art is still continuing and is also shifting to a more sustainable practice. More on that soon!
With that major shift, came a move to Orcas Island, where I am helping to caretake an off-grid, Permaculture and Organic farm.
At the moment, I am getting settled into my little cargo trailer I have been converting to a camper of sorts.
It is time I get back to blogging, my website, and a future YouTube channel too. It is early spring and the start of the garden season, a busy time of the year. I am looking forward to the warmer weather!
This move is a bit more complicated due to needing to navigate the ferry system so it will be spread out over the next few months. I will be taking the occasional break to explore my new home and share the beauty of this place with you all.
In Peace and Beauty, -Renee
