This week we have been living at our friends farm near Solrød. We have not been living in the bus, but adapting it – most importantly we have had it fixed (something with the wheels) and installed a wood burning stove. This is so cozy and amazing! Our friends had a visit from Germany of a guy who also converted a van, and he helped Jesper install the stove. It was more complicated than anticipated, but it is always like that. We have to be optimists, and yet just do the work. On the saturday the stove was up and running, and we thought installing the bicykle holder would be a one hour job, but actually it took forever, and we ended up buying a brand new one.
The time at the farm was also a time of connecting with friends, and of taking time out to be creative, drawing and coloring in, knitting and singing. We have been too busy and needed this quiet time. We had the chance to help moving goats around, especially moving the old male was a challenge, and a lot of fun.
Now at the end of this week we are so ready to be ready, and also working intensely on the inner part of the journey: To stay in the present moment and do whatever we know is right, trusting the process and the signals we receive. We feel scared, and work on letting it go, we feel stressed, and do meditation, we feel lucky, happy, excited, ready. Now, we really want to set sail for Paris! And yet we really need to let go of the planning and just listen to the moment. To the wind.
