In the summer of 2010/2011 I made a pact with myself to get better at things. Practical things. You see, my home state was 75% underwater, and I was hard-pressed to garner any practical skills to help out with the recovery mission. I’m never going to be a bobcat driver or a carpenter, so I made a list of other useful skills:  gardening, photography, weaving, knitting, beading, cooking.

I spent the ensuing year travelling, researching, writing, and being busy. I bought a fancy camera, did some photography courses, remembered how to knit and cooked and ate across three continents.

In the summer of 2011/2012 I my papa started teaching me how to weave, I took more photos, I became a sprout gardener, yoghurt maker and compost cultivator.

This blog is a new part of my journey, which right now is mostly focussed on photography, food and re-using stuff I used to throw away. Wanna share my adventure?
