Still work part time and don’t earn much money – Simeon long gone from my life!

 

Well here I am circa 1986 reading a book in the sunshine at my “Shelta” on Herland. I was an invited squatter on Herland which had a more organised management structure than the Valley¬†which was more anarchic… there was also Amazon Acres up the Mountain which was more organised. I spent time here off and on in the mid 1980’s it was a very creative community, but most of the “Shelta’s” were provisional like this one, although a few built more solid weatherboard cottages.
