Do you ever crave the simple life?
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying watching a Documentary series on the Amish lifestyle. I am so envious. The simple way they live and the sense of community. In good times and bad times they are there for each other. I know there are issues within the community, but overall they have something very special.
In everyday life, it just seems as thought there is no sense of community, not even within some families. We prize independence, we prize earning well etc., but we don’t put much emphasis on family. Or extended family as in friends for example. I personally don’t have any family left. (Except my son). So for me that part seems so helpful and amazing.
Do you feel to some extent one can recreate this simple supportive life, despite living in the ‘world’. Meaning this alienating society that has been created? Plus also not having having family.
