A Mere Pioneer

FF - A good omen 190612

Lisa decided she wanted to simplify her life, so she moved to the woods.  Having opted to follow in the footsteps of the Amish and Luddites, she did nothing in a high~tech way.


She rides daily, on horseback, to everywhere she has to go, and has a P.O. box for communication.



It’s become somewhat difficult, however, for her to engage in conversation with people she’s known for a long time.  Her city slicker friends don’t get all those pastoral references.



“Once we get past the culture shock,” she insists while preparing for a square dance, “we’ll be quite happy.”

        So hard to do, I do wish her well. However without a computer to help, my spelling is wacky, unreadable in fact. Such is life.

    If the shorelines and all low areas flood and internet services go down, we’ll all have to all lead a simpler life. It’ll be harder for some than others. I’ll admit it would hard for me and I remember what it was like before all of this. The only ones perfectly at home would be the Amish. I don’t know anything about the Luddites. A good story well written, Larry. 🙂 — Suzanne

    I think it’s great for ones who want to try to live that type of life. And kudos to them for doing so. Of course, it does make it a tad more difficult to keep contact with others.
