It was fun at her house, as it looked just like her - lots of growing, originality, and things evolving into other things.
Her work and her surroundings are all of a piece. She is also a 'doula', a kind of midwife. Bringing life to the world, and liveliness to our bodies is her mission and her profession.
Her new garden is just getting started as a permaculture garden. I did not know about her permie side, she did not know about mine. But we found each other.
Like a bee to honey.
The theme of her house is Happy.
Rebecca is coming to my 'Tim Ferriss Meetup group's New Year Planing day next weekend, when we will be thinking up ways to bring our lovely projects to the world.
One of her many projects is Rhubarb, a wholefood co-op.
A labor of love, I can see.

Navigating wears everything out.
While I waited, she had me sit and listen to a downloaded affirmation on her personal computer.
Navigating, and finding soulmates.

|My dinner: Oatmeal and Hawksbury river prawns, wth hot water and milk.|
He offered me some Hawksbury River Prawns he had just cooked to go with them. The were tiny and sweet, like cashews.
After my supper, Reg showed me some of the treasures he had gleaned from his days as the boss of the Wiseman's Ferry Dump.
A carousel cigarette dispenser. A curly candelabra. Elaborate Victorian dining contraptions and fancy china, all from the dump.
Hes blokey, but seemd to like the postcard set I gave him, with my pretty drawings.
