Off the Grid Poem

Published by admin on 09-Dec-2017 14:00 (225 reads)

A great poet is David L Hume, who lives in Tasmania. He is an amazing man who not only lives Off the Grid in Oz, so harvests his own power and water, he also extends his skills to making goats milk cheese, harvesting his own meat and creating beautiful hide rugs.

Here is one of his poems. I'm sure you will all love it as much as we do :)


Off the grid
I know my home intimately
My children too.
The land that nourishes
lives in the cracks of my skin.
I am warmed from the wood
I have gathered and split.

Off the grid
I stand and fall
on my own ability.
Eat seasonally from my garden.
My meat lives in the paddock.
The rug beneath your feet
gave sustenance also.

Off the grid
My power comes from the sun.
My need for shallow consumption controlled.
I draw my water from the creek
And like its youthful flow
My spirit runs and soars

Off the grid?
People ask
"Yes we are"
"I wish one day,
but it's so difficult."
They say.

Yes it is difficult
to turn your back on the soulless crowd,
the well trod path,
the nine to five and more.
Difficult to trust yourself,
Difficult to find the courage
To find your way.

D L Hume 2nd Quarter 2017

Introducing Kezzeens Kreations

One of my favorite Off Grid things I like to do is to create my own lotions and potions.

I have been playing around with creating natural lotions and potions for about 40 years. We use them to help keep us healthy, and without the need to buy products which contain a lot of nasty unnatural chemicals.

I have been asked many times why don't I sell my products? Well now I do. :)

My daughter, Neen, a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and now a mother of 4 delightful children herself, is now following in my footsteps. Together we are now offering our natural homemade products for other people to share their benefits.

We are not a large company obviously and all our products are made by hand in our own homes and we use only the best ingredients. We create with organic, raw and natural stuff. We do not mass produce and the products may change as to whatever we have available at any given time. You can ask us to make something special for you if you like.

We are also Doterra Wellness Advocates and not only use their oils to help us in our daily lives, but we include them in our products. If you would like to know how to buy your Doterra Essential Oils at wholesale prices, please talk to us.

We welcome you to our new venture and hope that you find something that you would like to try.

Cheers
Kerri-Ann and Neen
