Hi I own lot 66 at countryside village in Anmore , just put it up for sale but would love to have had you as a neighbour, Iam also an artist with a studio at rocky point with 10 other artists and had a verry similar experience as you have had I haveto agree the ride in the cruiser is verry humbling, I would love to meet you and compare notes on simar experiences although Iam not as open as you are maybe its time to share and hopefully help someone else in the process. My art is my therepy along with nature without those two elements I not shure where I would be. We are very lucky to have these gifts, just need to figure out how to share it more. Take care and I am shure we will meet everything happens for a reason

I'd like to trade an hour of my time for an hour of yours on a rainy day so we can drink hot tea together. :)

Hello Jay Peachy, I've just read about you on SwapSity and must tell you how much I admire you and your determination. That is the main reason for this email. I do not have much to offer you, except I do know that you would need sustenance in your endeavours. I make great healthy muffins and would gladly swap them for a lesson or two in art. I now this is impossible, as you must be a very busy person, but, no harm in wishing. I am an extreme amateur and just learning the basics but love it dearly. I struggle. Good Luck to you sir on your project. I wish you the very best. Sincerely Linda

What an awesome adventure! It truly shows what amazing things we can do with a little creativity, initiative, collaboration and, of course, barter. We can’t wait to see you in your eco-friendly home JP!
