I think now is an appropriate time to reveal the next chapter of my journey – that is becoming a land owner. The desire to acquire property has been cooking for several years; in fact, ever since I came back from North Carolina I have wanted land for myself.
For several years now I have been contemplating the chess board – deciding which move I would take. It had been a back-and-forth dilemma between various ideas and locations – what kind of life I wanted to transition into. I was never able to commit to just one of them.
Thankfully, a group of friends and I have recently started a very ambitious gardening quartet – looking to bring clean nutrient dense foods to our local markets, to change the perceptions of how food can be grown, to educating school children, to promoting self reliance and so forth. This group, with its drive, passion, and motivation, it became the momentum I needed to push myself forward and continue down the path I had started years ago.
Everything went so fast.
We needed land and I wanted somewhere we could call ours. The time was right and I knew about a 2 acre property which had good potential. The price was good but my offer made it better. After all these years of waiting I had the funds ready for this moment. My offer was accepted without hesitation.
Now we wait for the finalization of paperwork and then to hand over the cash payment to seal the deal.
This is just the beginning of the new Enlightenment.
