It is easy to wish for a simpler past
but in our current life and how we live
it would require a lot more than what we have:
namely community I think.
Even my Grandmother canned her fruits and vegetables
with family; farms and community were made for a world
where there was more interdependence and working together.
I think it is the latter that we actually miss
when wishing to be living in a different time;
this and the beauty that the past has that is not always continued
or replicated today....
