Country living or City-life? I’ve spent most of my life living in the city but I’ve also had some really invigorating visits with friends in the country. The artist/maker lifestyle lends itself to isolation, something that country living only heightens, and that’s fine but I need regular social interaction to keep me sane!

Artists are always spellbound by the idea of a simpler purer life, building up their world from scratch without all the pollution of the city – for both body or mind, but when the rubber hits the road they sometimes find that the HARD WORK of country life (specifically farming) can shatter their utopian fantasies.

That being said, the best things are the hardest won and I can’t think of a more righteous way to spend your life than farming. So I’ve decided to have it all! this summer I’m planing on getting 3 chickens, doing some raised bed gardening, and wild forging. I will hopefully have a respectable little urban farm.
