Off-the-grid cabin on the St. Francis River, New Brunswick, Canada.
Contributed by Stephen Spang, who says:
"I built this cabin in 1969 when I was 26 years old, and still own it. I bought its acre of land from a friend for $1 and a bottle of Scotch!
We have kept the camp simple, utilizing Coleman 2-burner stove for cooking, kerosene lamps for lighting, and block ice for refrigeration. We heat with a box wood-stove, and use an antique kerosene-fueled puddle burner (vented) for night time warmth when it’s really cold. We run water from the spring 300’ up the hill behind the cabin through a hose into the kitchen.
I once read that a test of having chosen a good cabin site is if returning to it is more pleasurable with each visit. This camp has that effect.”
Greenhouse in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, Canada.
My father built this greenhouse with salvaged windows and wood from abandoned crumbling barns and our forest. He built the foundation with handmade cement and rocks from our property. It is perfect for growing tomatoes in our maritime climate.

Nothing will ruin your 20’s more than thinking you should have your life together already.
What happens here, in the West, is that our world, our natural, regular development from Paganism, was interrupted by another civilization that imposed itself and cut off this evolution.
In ancient Greek worship there is revealed to us one of humanity’s greatest religious ideas — we make bold to say the religious idea of the European spirit. It is very different from the religious idea of other civilizations, and particularly of those which customarily supply our religious scholarship and philosophy with examples for the origin of religion. But it is essentially related to all genuine thoughts and creations of Hellenism, and is conceived in the same spirit. Like other eternal achievements of the Greeks it stands before humanity large and imperishable. The faculty which in other religions is constantly being thwarted and inhibited here flowers forth with the admirable assurance of genius — the faculty of seeing the world in the light of the divine, not a world yearned for, aspired to, or mystically present in rare ecstatic experiences, but the world into which we were born, part of which we are, interwoven with it through our sense and, through our minds, obligated to it for all its abundance and vitality.
