1) Be what Earth needs of you. 🌍
Over Soil: Who? Well, just another human bean (Hummus spiens). 😋 An individual who is obviously (if you met me) not quite a standard issue and quite enigmatic. Basically, I just don’t think I’m like an average Borg drone, that’s part of some media fuelled collective mind. I’m totally not willing to go with the crowd, no way! I prefer many less obviously~manipulating ways, where perhaps I’m naturally liking things more than a bit different. Oh and I try to be kind in each moment, even unto myself and apparently I’m an ENFJ “Protagonist”. Maybe you’ve met me in person, have you? Perhaps then you think you know who I am, but it’s more likely that you don’t know me and that really does not matter, for to know me is my job (as to know you is yourn). I’m just here alive on this beautiful planet Earth, attempting to patiently stay over the soil while looking after myself and others, planting, planting,🌱 planting, keeping busy and happily hopeful for our shared humane future, wishing others to also care and live harmoniously in peace to create a life filled forest garden. 🕊
2) Promote peace and plant a beautiful future! 🌳
The Blogs: Sharing from a changing life, as I do my best. So here you’ll find some of my knowledge gleaned from within the story of this attempt at a good life (sometimes on a rollercoaster), with no-dig forest gardening and home making stuff, upcycling, ecology and things about life with other sentient beings in mind, events, playful stuff, belly dance, along with a lot about kindness and peace (or witnessing the lack thereof). As it annoys me a little bit to see someone repost their same stuff over and over, I won’t do that here. The Over Soil blogs are pure self indulgence, so if you get something from them, then that’s just a bonus.
3) Earth profits a HOME and life to those who plant. 🌱
Where: I live in a modest property that has views of fields in a couple of directions, but houses on t’other. When I look down at the garden from the Google Earth map, it’s the one with all the dark green garden full of trees and thriving from many a thing I’ve planted. However, it doesn’t show how many species of wildlife visit here, but trust me, the range of biodiversity has been pretty darn impressive!
4) Change within 🕊 don’t wait for others.
Comments: Beloveds, I want to say a warm “Thank you” for kind responses. However, for those with a propensity to being unkind with their words and inciteful of the nasty stuff, sadly you will find your comments booted out into cyberspace, giving you a [TIME~OUT] to change your thinking.
Adverts: I don’t pay for this blog, so I’ve no say over the advert content and yes you will find wordpress sponsors may have put all sorts of stuff here. However, I just want to say “Thank you wordpress for this free blog“. As an author of sorts, I have to turn my jean pockets inside-out and show you they’re so very, VERY empty (and therefore I don’t see me paying back my UK student loan any time soon, the ones I took out to get both my degree with honours or my environmental masters degree).
Images: Most of the images are from the WordPress free photo library “Thank you” for those, but it’s not an impossible thing for a few images to be mine just occasionally.
Links: Take a look in the text for this shade of blue and sometimes underlined too, for these are links. If you click on them, they can “link” you to something informative or a song or humour… I’ve dotted them all over the posts and there’s a few on this page too, so just try one perhaps?
Disclaimer: Please just glean and adapt things on these blogs to your own situation, to live and love compassionately with over sentients upon this beautiful planet Earth. Basically Over Soil accepts NO liability for any loss or damage suffered from relying on information, recipes (as I’m obviously not a chef), views (I can be outspoken) and opinions expressed (that might parallel what other people are also saying or more likely to be completely the opposite).
Patronage perhaps: Well when I’ve published some of my many poems (just a few are dotted around the blog) you might like to buy them and support my future ventures in turning wasted land into thriving organic permaculture orchard forest gardens. Shall I at some point add a patreon link? probably nope, never, sorry, or one of those paypal set ups? nope and sorry again. Let’s all keep the dreams of an Eden on Earth for the world of humans and creatures alike, but in the meantime can you also please plant, plant, plant and last, but not least: Welcome to the blog of
