{here :: being present}

I'm still here.Sort of.
Living in a very present :: now :: conscious way.

One tiny house.Four people.Lots of happiness.

For the first time in a very long time,longer than I can remember, I am living and happy to be living right where I am. Dreams&ideas&wishful thinking has taken a backseat to playing in the creek everyday with two little (naked) ones; listening to the radio in the evening with Sam as we wash-up (no electricity means no tv,CDs,computers,minimal (I)Phone games); going to bed early under the mosquito net with a good book and a torch.

Of course we are still talking,planning,thinking,dreaming about the big house we are to build. But we sit on our little verandah and look directly to the spot where our new house will be. When a long-held dream is sitting looking at you, then somehow it's easier to happily be in the moment. To let the dream evolve by itself and not have to be propelled along.

Until we organize Internet options (phone plans aren't that good for blogging or browsing), I'll be scarce around here.I'm trying to work out how to upload photos to blogger from my iPhone (4), anyone know. I do miss my laptop,don't much like the web world in minimised,app form.

Hope you're all well.I'm missing you. Promise I'll be back soon with beautiful photos to make you jealous of out 'tree-change'.


  1. So nice to hear from you Ellie, I do think of you often and wonder how it is all going. Looking forward to seeing some pics (and being totally jealous) once you get it all sorted :)

  2. I was just wondering how you are all getting on! Glad to hear well :) I haven't tried doing a post to Blogger on my iPhone yet but I can see why you'd have problems - the image chooser is greyed out and you'd have to know the URL of the Flickr photo you wanted and I can't figure that one out either! But if you could then you should be able to do it that way - does Picasa show image URLS? I'd love to see some!

  3. I can't wait to see what you are up to and think of you so often. I didn't mention on your previous post how much I love the kids' quilts. You will be pleased to know that every time I go to Stef I make her let me hold her wedding quilt - it is so, so beautiful. Good luck with everything and so looking forward to hearing as much as we possibly can about your big, beautiful leap. Love Kate xxooxx.

  4. oh Ellie, offline life is so much more important for sure, and you're right to count your blessings & enjoy the moment as it comes.
    sorry I don't know how to upload photos to Blogger from an Iphone, though I have one too, but I have never tried.
    I hope you are all doing well too. Thinking about you
    oxoxo hugs

  5. Wow soundz wonderfull! I have iPhone & blog from it thru blogger. Upload the app blogpress. It works great for pics & everything. I uploaded pics to my phone & then add them to my blogpost thru blogpress! I luv the app have been using it for year or so!
    Good luck!
