down on the farm


Can I bear to put words to screen around this exercise in futility?  You tease me with wishes fulfilled. One of my longest held dreams is to have a house of my own, a home in the country…

The relief of being able to renovate with no concern for the cost.  Doesn’t mean I’d be thoughtless of course!  No stress, no pressure.  Repairs done right.

I’d so love to spend some time alone.  Find my little patch in the sun, my chair with a view, cup of coffee and a cat.

This dream project would give wings to my circle as well.  The creative two could get stuck in – designing, decorating.  Give me a garden that feeds us.

And in another area of the farm a self sufficient retreat centre.  I could be with people when I want, and then not.  Probably no regular sangha but meditation/dharma retreats scheduled when it suits me.  Could be open to more than one group.  Maybe some writers.  Some workshops on garden design…

Maybe there would be a resident monk.  In time, depending on my desire for solitude, a small Buddhist hospice even…who knows.  Let’s get the house restored first 😉
