Just some random thoughts from the Dafthermit

Everyone should dance at least once under a winter mountain rainbow..

I woke this morning with my big toe peeking oot from the duvet. And before i woke fully. A ball of fur flew through the air .
With claws extented my cat sits and purrs at her latest succesful hunt..


As the sun this morning rose the north wind said not today and blew clouds rolled in till the sun was no more
. magic.............


Good luck Voyager......

Set your camera to macro and leap into a wonderful hidden world



Soaring high in the mountains with my wee heart fit to burst the simple joy at having finished my latest wee film. Love and light x..........


Is there anything funnier than your dog farting and THAT
Look of utter confusion..............



Irn bru snowmam . brillant..........



Stop the world i want to get off oh shit i forgot i HAVE....



One angry wee hermit . People that attack others for caring are worse than SCUM.............


BAD DAY yesterday must be getting old only managed to smoke 120 fags eat 15 cakes and drink 20 cups of coffee............


Buses for homes the ultimate recyclying


Imagine being known forever as the guy that poked Camilla is that not enough punishment ........


enjoying a wonderful storm in the Scottish highlands...........


Off tonight to hit the skips to see what goodies have been thrown oot Free shopping and saves a wee bit of landfill............

Living off the grid makes more and more sense it is not just for weirdos like me.
It is a way to take control good for the planet and your wallet..........



Tailgaters are a pain in the rear..........

Had a good moan at Frank the wind genny anyway it worked and we got free power during the night...........

So glad i ditched credit cards over 20 years ago............



To live in the highlands and still have a face like a slapped arse your heart MUST be cold beyond belief...........



The closer i get to death the younger i get...............

To dance alone in the high mountain glens you learn we are never alone....


A drive through the Scottish mountains not only sets your soul free it links you to oor past.............



Just had someone explain to me what a mortgage is sorry at 50 still dont get it..


Weather forecasters just bring us the weather and NOT your negative thoughts...



The simple joy of being a dog lover chasing them around trying to convince them that that frozen turd is NOT
A lolly....

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
