As I close in on the next chapter in family life – my daughter graduates this year, and my partner's two younger sons graduate in the next two consecutive years – I am fascinated by how and where we will live in the coming years. Given the current state of the world, the U.S. economy, and the climate, the next decade will be a very interesting transition.
I came across some interesting reading and innovation the other day while looking at sustainable living communities. I am keen to explore the nomadic, van life, drifter lifestyle. Having some occasional home bases and communities to be involved in part of the year is appealing.
I invested in a geoship Bioceramic Dome to hopefully put on some land in the Four Corners area. They are also building communities.
"The relationships between systems, people, and the material world can be redefined to generate transformative innovation. We’re developing a platform for communities to organize, align on their vision, and build the future of home."
I also came across "Unitism" (scroll to the bottom for a summary). I’m going to look at the library for the "Land" book.
"What if we lived in a world where everyone had enough? A world where everyone mattered and where people lived in harmony with nature?"
Later, I found Kift through someone I follow on Instagram.
"Members get access to a growing network of home bases across the West with essential groceries and provisions, fast wifi, and an inclusive, adventurous community — everything you need to live an extraordinary life."
As someone who doesn't think our current economic environment is sustainable, I am interested in ways we can live now and in the future that minimize our exposure to the oligarchies and kleptocracies we currently live under and create inclusive communities of support.
Anyhow, just wanted to share some things to ponder. I'd love to talk about it with you.
Peace and love!
