Just been checking blogs and there is a letter posted on Janaia’s Journal from Stuart, an American living in Japan describing what it is like at the moment.
I know I have said on many occasions (like so many others) that self sufficiency, growing your own food and being generally resilient in times of difficulty are the keys to coping with the massive changes that is happening in our world – this letter from Stuart highlights, for me, the reasons why I am taking the path that I am on.
While I don’t wish the disasters of Japan, Queensland, Victoria or New Zealand or anywhere else for that matter on anyone – they so serve a purpose in reminding us all that life is precious and that if we are to survive in an ever changing world we need to go back to basics.
Take the time to read Stuarts letter. It’s well worth your time.
