I am not a hippy. I’m not a crusty. I’m not a gypsy. I work for a living. I pay my taxes and I am a responsible citizen. I believe in recycling. I do not litter. But I want a simple life and so with my husband I’m moving into a van. Maybe we will hate it. Or maybe this is the beginning of a new life.

In search of another life

"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn..."

We Are Waterless

We have had no running water for a few days now. There seems to be a problem with the battery but we do not know what it is. Reg changed the fuses but it did no good. I am not keen on not being able to wash my hands easily and the toilet not flushing. Of course we have a lot of water, but it feels like camping to constantly have to pour it into bowls. At least we will appreciate what we have more when the running water comes back.
