Tal, thanks so much my main damie. Pullin it all together and getting that shindig going. It really meant a lot to Eileen and I to see off all our friends like that. (Well at least my friends from Unionville area)
In this entry, I wanted to mention Ei and I's new ambitious and wonderful potential project. Which, in retro-specs can be seen as a major incentive to return to the Ontario area... (of course outside of our loved families and friends). The thing is, we never really "planned" on returning for a long period of time. But with this new potential about, our clocks are turning and we're beginning to think that Dan's cottage would be the perfect place to set up camp for a few years whenever it is that we return. For those of you who have no idea where this is, it's roughly 2 hours north west from Toronto and 30 min south west from COllingwood. Nearest town is Flesherton... and the little community/town itself is called Eugenia. It's perfect. Our trip has always been about sustainable living. And the principles, philosophies, and skills behind taking part in such an environment. Well, there we were trying to figure out where we were going to eventually purchase property and set up a 5 year project... when all along the perfect fixer upper was waiting right under our noses. The community is developing into quite a nice artisan center. With a minority of Quebecois and quaint, classic Ontario scenery absorbing the atmosphere, Eugenia and the area has seemingly developed along our lines at just the right time.
We have now set off on our travels with a major green-remodeling project in mind. Now, all the skills and experience we seek out will likely have this property in running through our thoughts.
We're very excited about our return. And the funny thing is, we did everything we could to leave Canada with a clean slate, to find new beginnings wherever it is that these new beginnings may find us. I find this to be such a blessing and a conundrum because we now can't wait to return.
We'll speak again soon,
Much of that love, Daniel and Eileen
