Experiments with enough – Day 65

Experiments with enough – Day 65

🎤Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 65? 🎤

Bahrija day through and through. Waking up at Bahrija Oasis has a special quality to it. There’s a kind of peace that’s difficult to find in other places. I woke up and went directly to writing again, this time on my laptop.

After that I ventured out and did a little wander of the land, eating wild flowers and fennel as I walked. I eventually climbed a big rock (realising how out of climbing practice I am) and did an amazing morning meditation overlooking the sea.

I eventually climbed down, met Jo somewhere on the path (as you do) and went back in for wheatgrass shots and smoothie breakfast, most of the ingredients for which had been grown on the land. This is what luxury looks like for me. Eating locally grown, pesticide free food in beautiful surroundings with great people.

The boys went down to finish varnishing the geodesic domes while the girls made food and I tried to come up with an organisational game plan for the foundation. I started using Trello to create some order and timeline to the multitude of tasks that need to be done in the next few months.

We eventually all stopped for another amazing and mostly homegrown lunch followed by Peppi and myself gathering the papers we need to submit to the Commissioner of Public bodies to officialise the changes we made to the statute of the Foundation. Who knew it would take so much paperwork and running around between lawyers, notaries and public offices?

A little walk, some hanging, reading and eventually the drive home to Valletta for a lot of (yummy) food, some work and welcome sleep.
