Lens-Artist’s Challenge #75 – Nostalgic

Nostalgia: a feeling of pleasure and also slight sadness when you think about things that happened in the past.

This year, we will spend our 25th Christmas on the farm. In 1995 we sold everything we owned to buy a farm with no house, no power and no running water. We had a plan but no money so we made do with the kindness of friends and family and our own creativity and ingenuity. Life changed dramatically as we embarked on the adventure of a lifetime.

Home for 12 years was 3 rooms plus a tin shed bathroom and a snazzy outhouse with a window and no door. The fire heated water and the fence kept Sid the muscovey duck out.

A life pared back to the essentials is simple and each little improvement you make gives immense pleasure. Click on the links above to read about the journey.

Thank you Tina for this weeks challenge, nostalgic.
