This image of an Amish farm is one that I have kept coming back to for several days, ever since my hubby and I took a drive through the country, like a couple of “old people” on a Sunday afternoon. We sought out the areas where people different than we are choose to make their living – by living a simpler life with far fewer of what we think of as necessities.
Seeing their horse drawn buggies parked there, the well kept barns and grounds, looking through the fence into this scene of a life like nothing I have known, all of it leaves me with so many questions. How do they make it work? How do they keep their food safe? What is it like to grow up and continue that life style? And I wonder what they say about those of us who choose to live differently than they do?
