Hello and Welcome to the Affric Project and the LIVE IT club.
My name is Louise Hodgson and about ten years ago I realised that my
life was not all that it could be so I decided to find out how to truly
live happily ever after in the real world. It has been a fantastic
roller coaster ride of emotions and adventures none of which I could
have believed if you had asked me at the start. But here I am ten years
on and indeed among many other things that I have discovered about
myself and the world I have indeed discovered the secret of living
happily in the real world no matter what. Now life is a wonderful
challenge and an adventure to make myself and the world better whenever
and whereever I can because I can for the joy of doing it.
I am looking for other people who are or would like to do the
same so that we can share ideas and experiences and support each other
to explore what is really possible when people truly share common
purpose and have a firm intention to provide rock solid support for
each other from the start and into the future. At the same time we will
be doing projects that support the idea of understanding our true
situation and making it better for ourselves and others. In other words
helping each other turning dreams into reality. By combineing ideas we
will be able to make them better and together we will be able to make
them happen in practice easier than alone.
The Affric Project
The Affric is my house and has so far not only
helped me enormously on my quest for happiness but at the same time has
provided practical and emotional support for quite a few other people,
as well as providing a lot of insight into life the universe and
how the system doesn't seem to work. The Affric is an old ninteen
bedroom hotel in one of Scotlands most beautiful Highland Glens and as
it is a project that needs to be started again it provides a blank
canvas and heeps of potential for people to get together to create
groups with shared purpose and develop with whatever else we chose
ideas for making old buildings more energy efficient.
So now I am LIVING IT and as well as developing myself further I am
using the house to explore ideas for making things better and putting
them into practice. So far I have recycled a power station conveyerbelt
to make a long lasting flat roof, created rain water traps, learnt to
make my own biodiesil and generally challenged myself to self reliance.
Glen Affric is a wonderful place where you can really feel something
special and it is best appreciatede by people who have a long term
conection. As this is a very small place I was thinking how could more
people be part of it and as I really would really love to share
this experience with other people who share my dream of creating
quality, sustainable lives for themselves and others I have come up
with the idea for the LIVE IT club.
The Live IT club.
Coming very soon. Watch this space.
