I am just in the midst of writing a piece about such self-sufficiency (not my own, for the most part) and suspected more of same from you. For some time now I've been writing "get back to the land" pieces here that go nowhere, like most of what I write. Poor me, I am so lacking in gratitude this late in life.

I wish we had enough people here committed to searching for not simply a dream of a change in lifestyle but a genuine change of heart. Who would then go looking for voices like yours and building a community of them so that, perhaps, someday, that community could become viable in the real world.
