This year will be my 20th year in Japan, and it will be a memorable one for me as I set out to achieve my goal of creating a self-sustaining lifestyle. I know that it won't be possible to be 100% independent, and do not see that as being a desirable goal. I enjoy interacting with people too much for that. What I aim to do is live a more peaceful life, more in harmony with my surroundings. I'm hoping to build a life more closely connected to the earth and my community and less connected to pathological influences on the world.
In this blog I hope to bring together resources for people interested in a similar lifestyle in Japan or outside of it, as well as create a journal space for myself.
