This project was birthed out of a dark place. I had been out of work for two years, struggling financially spiritually, emotionally. At some point I realized that if I wanted to get out of the deep dark pit I found myself in, I would have to regain a sense of purpose and interest in life in general. I also realised that our one family, white picket fence style of living has become hopelessly outdated in a society where one family alone often cannot facially survive. Humanity has recognised that this planet can only be saved if we all pull together on a global scale, if there will be follow-through on that realisation who knows, sadly as individuals we cannot control the outcome. What we can control is our individual impact and behaviour.
So as I sat there moping I took a look around me and realised that while my house was in a rude state of disrepair, I still had land and a house while others did not . I had resources, there for a vintage point from which I could implement change. After realising that my pit might not be as deep as perceived , I tried to crystallise the main things that are important to me as an individual and found that simplified it summed up to the following , art , science , A love for animals , ecological consciousness, making a positive difference in other people’s lives, creating something of value a legacy of sort. Slowly the outline of Mutant house evolved from this first initial spark, the ideas are still evolving and will transform organically as others join the project. As is Mutant house is for now a one woman project, and being such might take a while to accomplish. This here blog will follow the transformation of my house and property into a self-sustaining eco-earthship-tree-house-hybrid, for My Pets, visitors, myself and for those might later join me in this endeavour.
I have also decided to include occasional posts about my change of diet from vegetarian to vegan. I have an array of ailments and am conducting somewhat of a self experiment to see if a vegan diet will improve my health substantially, as it claimed by various sources. The compassion factor of a vegan diet is defiantly a plus as is its impact on the reduction of global warming emissions.
So once again welcome to my little project which in my head is already a thriving self-sustaining artist colony , a sanctuary for both animals and people who find themselves wanting to crawl out of the pit and give living another try . In these hard economic times we need to start looking at other options and become the change we are looking for.
