Van herbs

August 27, 2018

  Andy found this lovely set of hanging pots in Ikea so I can grow herbs on the road. I’ve enjoyed getting dirt under my fingernails potting them today. We have thyme, mint and rosemary here, and also bought a bonsai tree for the dashboard. #dailyconnectionwithnature day97…

Memory stones

August 11, 2018

  I connect with the land and people wherever we are by creating ‘memory stones’ that I lay in the river of energy that is the mind/body/spirit.

Eating on the Road

December 22, 2017

The first few weeks of eating on the road are chaotic – our diet consists of takeaways, motorway service station food & posh noodles in pots while minds & bodies acclimatise to our new life. I’d dreamed of a long, slow process of choosing food at local markets & creating luscious, rich, food ad-hoc from our regular hauls, but December is flat out with performances, events & workshops & the kitchen is still upside down so that I don’t know…
