Everything about the coutryside I dont think I can get it in five but here goes
1 - The Sustainability of Life, lack of waste and lack of greed i.e. only taking and using what you need from the land. If we all lived like this perhaps there may still be some resources left to allow the human race to survive beyond the next 100 years or so.
2 - The sound of 'complete' silence - and I mean complete silence
3 - The glorious simplicity of life
4 - The stars
5 - Living in tune with mother nature not completely against it, and therefore learning to respect the absolute brutalness of a simple life, what it means to you, your family and your animals.
6 - The realisation that that you dont need posessions, electricity or heating to be happy.
7 - The fact that I bet these people are much happier with very little than many of the people like us with so many posessions, so much greed and so many of the earths wasted resources that are killing our species, our planent and all around us.
Erica has just told me to stop and go for a pint, so I'll leave it there.
