I always wanted to live more ecologically and without having to chase large amounts of money. And I’ve now achieved it. I live in a little wooden cabin I built on a piece of land here in the French Pyrenees. I’m off-grid and live by solar electricity, rainwater harvesting, solar showers, dry toilets… It’s real “low-impact living”.
I got here by WWOOFing. From 1999 to 2005 I lived in a truck (with my then-partner) and was a full-time WWOOFer in France and Spain. We visited a lot of ecovillages, some of which were on the WWOOF list, some of which weren’t. We found them through networks like the Global Ecovillage Network or the Réseau Francais des Ecovillages, and they were generally open to taking visitors like us on a ‘WWOOF-style’ basis.
My partner and I were both very ‘handy’ people for building, carpentry, electricity, plumbing etc, and we carried a lot of tools with us, so our WWOOF hosts often offered us some paid work too. That kept some diesel in the tank and got us through the times when we took a break from WWOOFing.
I never did find an intentional community I wanted to be part of long term, but I ended up here on a small patch of land in the mountains, putting into practice what I’d learned through those six years of WWOOFing. It was a perfect apprenticeship. I can recommend it.
If my way of life appeals to you, feel free to come and visit sometime.

Dream life. I’ll be visiting this man one day.
It’s my first day of my summer holiday and I made some succulent and moss terrariums. There’s a few bits of crystals in there as well. I’m so happy about these!

The thing that hurts the most is the fact that I lied to myself. I wanted things to be good so badly that I made up things to gloss over the bad parts. I know that sounds stupid, but that’s exactly what I did. I actually believed it too. To want is a bad thing sometimes. It gets people hurt. It got me hurt. The world is a lonely place and people will go to great lengths to find someone whom they can be with. Someone who doesn’t think that they’re a creep. Just wanting to be able to talk to someone, that want will make you do some nasty things to yourself.

Have patience with all things— but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You are perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that.

Ashley is such a babe
I could never cheat on anyone. It’s the type of mistake and wrong doing I couldn’t live with. Knowing that you destroyed someone’s trust is bad, but destroying someone’s perspective on love is far too worse.

It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.

Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.
