Gardener, cook, healer, teacher
I’m leaving my old profile below in italics. Since I “rebooted” I have never ever been this healthy. I discovered how to be healthy and never want to be ill again. I lost 10kg in months and it’s stayed off. I’m on the more spiritual path nowadays, trying to raise two beautiful kids, not taking stuff overly seriously. I grow food, I learnt to cook it well, and I’m slowly learning about healing through herbs/spices/food and Ba Duan Jin Qi Gong. When I feel experienced in the latter I’ll help others, but I’m not there yet.
Middle aged old fart stay at home Dad with slightly glittered career behind him as scientist/researcher in GIS and geodetics in sometimes crummy establishments. Nowadays – hiker, XC skier, mountain biker, gardener, cook.
My attempts to develop a veg garden often fail thanks to frost and slugs. I have decided to make my garden a celebration of pests. The slugs are now welcome in the garden, as is the harsh climate. The reverse logic being that when you want them to come they’ll bugger off.
And the strategy works. This year there are no slugs, the veg garden is infested with food and looks like a great year in prospect.
