Gosh, it’s a long time since I wrote a blog post! This website has been disabled for a few months, and now that it is back online it is with the news that the tenancy of this property is coming to an end in March. The cabin is coming to the end of its useful life, and the owner needs to do other development and maintenance work around the site so has decided to discontinue letting the property. I will be sad to leave as I, and those who have come to stay with me, have greatly appreciated the peacefulness of life by the lake. (As I write this I am watching two pairs of ducks and a heron, whom I haven’t chased off since the fish will all be lying low in this freezing weather. Who will guard them when I’m gone?)
I am looking for another property to rent in this area, ideally a quiet cottage. I think it very unlikely that I will find somewhere that I can have the caravan so I will probably be letting that go and instead having guest accomodation within the house. I am feeling that it is time to become more connected to the local community and to make myself more available to teach meditation and Buddhism and offer spiritual support.
I have been out viewing local properties and one in particular looks very promising. More about that, if all goes well, in the next post.
