Towel Rack Dreams


Cecilia's Towel Rack Dreams. Keith=Earth Building. Ami=bring cheerleading to Australia. Aya=fuzzylove

A drawing of each housemate's dream and name identified their own towel, in our super-shared bathrooms. It was ‘three birds with one stone’ Permaculture:


1. We related to the dream version of each other, daily. 2. If we forgot the new person's name, no worries, there it is.

3. We never got a leftover towel.


Having a lovely dream and sharing it makes human connections even lovelier, and gives people a reason to connect with you.


Tomorrow is wonderful Julie's final day in her Gardenfarm Internship. Here are her thoughts on creating her next dream:

My Dream

By Julie Magnus


Yesterday at Gardenfarm, Cecilia presented me permaculture and her 5S decluttering method.

To illustrate the principle 'three birds, one rock', she showed me a picture of the bathroom in her former house. Every housemate could hang his/her towel, and on the wall, Cecilia would write their names and a drawing representing their personal dream. More than one year ago, knowing these people’s dream, was a beautiful way to remember them.

It made me wonder for a minute: what is my dream ? how would they remember me here at Gardenfarm? 


So I decided that I should have a dream too:


I dream I could keep on living this peaceful Australian life forever, but, with the rare things I miss from Europe: the people I love and all the yummy French cheeses. 


I dream I could earn a living helping and inspiring people, by doing only the things I love (yoga, dancing, eating well, writing, observing, listening).


I dream I could always live where the sun is. I am born in summer. The sun makes happy, full of joy and energy. I want to live his rhythm.


I dream I could feel free to go, anytime, anywhere I want, even when I am not travelling.


I dream I could bring more flowing in my life, not just when I dance or do yoga : more flow in my communication, more flow in my decisions (less of '2 steps forward, 1 step backward'), more flow in my relationships. Less fear.


That’s a long dream. In short, I dream:


I could bring together all the things I loveI want to bring value to people by doing something I’m not bored of. I want sunlight and warmth. I never want to feel stuck again somewhere because of my belongings, an apartment or a job. I dream I could finally stop fearing being judged for who I am.

I am curious what drawing would be on the wall for this dream!
