Composting, as an environmental solution.
Now that Stella has passed away, what next?
She has touched the earth for almost 70 years, changed things she found necessary. Has left her mark on things she encountered. And has left this earth, as if she were an astronaut, and will never return. Is gone forever, only her drawings, paintings, this blog, the other blogs, and her own blog, the design and design of our house, is all that is left of her. And my and others, the memories of her. But what next?
Every day people visit the blogs that she has compiled and written. She has shaped them in her own, so characteristic way. And now suddenly it has to be different, because she is no longer there, to do it. And it can be done differently. Is it possible to fill the blog in a way that is also interesting enough for readers, or do they all drop out? I do not know.
So far readers worldwide have come to the blog. Some with 60 hits and topics per day. There appears to be a need to be able to read about compost and composting. People seem to get fascinated again and again, and pass it on to others. Appreciation is also expressed, and sometimes an email is sent to indicate that. The only art is to be able to retain that attention and interest. Stella apparently succeeded, and the question is whether I, Hendrik, will continue to succeed.
With this piece I already indicate that it will go further. Accents will change, there will be a different way of writing. And ................ I will present other topics.
The development of composting here, on our estate, is almost complete. The compost from our last composting will remain in the Big Bags until next September. That will be quite exciting, because I did composting this year in a different way than previous years.
In addition, I am busy cooking my own meals, because Stella always did that, and now no longer.
I gradually get through that cooking, on new ideas to prepare vegetables in a different way than Stella did, and with other combinations.
In addition, I want to delve into other ways of living together.
I now live in a farm that is actually much too large for myself alone. It doesn't bother me, I don't feel lonely, even though I miss Stella immensely. But it is also a shame that the space is not being used.
I do not yet know how that should take shape. I spent two months learning to live without Stella. How that will behave is also not clear to me. I am a people person, I like to get along with others, but it must have its feet. That's why I want to set it up wider than Stella did. Then it was about composting and social present, as a sort of contradiction. In the compost hope this happens, and socially that happens. We were two, had enough of it, and didn't think further.
Now that I am alone, I look at daily things differently and report on them. The question is whether that is found interesting. Whether my way of looking at all those things is fascinating enough to attract and retain attention. I don't know that either, so I just do it and see where the ship (the compost heap) is stranded. (Noah's Ark :).
So if someone has comments or comments, or new ideas, I would love to hear that. Composting as an environmental solution. I will have to have healthy vegetables.
