Free-Range Living

What is Free-Range Living?

'Freerange' living might perhaps be described as the individual(s) aiming to lead an 'independent' style of life, thinking and deciding for themselves, determining their own values, along with aiming to live life in a naturally self and socially responsible manner.

'Unsprung Spring'

March 22, 2013 ·

Mid-March gone and the countryside hereabouts (UK midlands) could by its appearance still be in mid-winter. The woodpigeons are still on the fields of clover, the fruit blossom is struggling to get out, and very little as yet has been planted/ sown in the ground.

The 'freerange' activity of trying to get 'the big boys' to play fair still continues, with various 'big business' skirmishes over the past few weeks, and the pleasant re-discovery that dealing with people directly at a premises can still give a  pleasant  'human' experience.  Encouragement came from the perhaps unlikely source of the obituary of a Frenchman who'd written a well-known booklet extolling the need for individuals to 'counter the system'. 'Business-isation' methods seem to have proliferated in recent years, with governments. for instance, adopting them seemingly wholesale, although the limitations of some, for example, 'target culture', are beginning to be more identified these days.

The seasons change here on the eco micro-holding, with 'countryside combing' now giving way to planting and sowing, only to be hindered by the cold late 'unsprung spring'.
