Living off the Grid
A Collection of Short Stories and Words of Love
About the Book
I have written this book of short stories so wherever you are I might touch your heart. To read and live the experiences. For you to know everything cannot be explained with simple words. We all have feelings, curiosity, and enjoy being lost in fantasy. Escaping our world and stepping into someone else’s. Questioning what we believe. Enjoy my words. I may make you smile or maybe bring a tear. I hope you will be pleased. There are some who don’t spend their energy to fit in; they choose to fit out. It’s not that they don’t want the company of people. But to them the company of nature is so much greater. You get to see the uniqueness of a landscape, the beauty of a lake, stars in the night sky, surrounded by so many trees you couldn’t possibly count them all. This is where their comfort lies. This is where their heart longs to be. So, you don’t have a city of packed dwellers. It’s more of a movement to live free. To live with less yet have so much more. This is the way off the grid living is. You make the most of everything. You waste nothing. You value your work to better your small piece of heaven. You depend on other like-minded people to share their experiences for your gain. And this band of brothers are more than eager to help. Any why do they do this? To have morning coffee and enjoy your solitude looking at raw nature? Well! - yes, that is one. But mainly because they are different. They took the leap of faith. And they never want to go back. I tip my hat to the ones who never allowed their adventurous spirit to leave. They were never tamed.
