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.

'Higher Planes --- '

April 07, 2020 ·

Today's surreal and strange times come at the end of what's seemed a long-ish winter here at the eco micro-holding in the UK midlands. Some warmer, sunnier weather prompted some planting and sowing, probably around a couple of weeks or so later than the norm. Everywhere was looking a little 'worse for wear' so maintenance tasks such as house painting became the order of the day, along with some sawing and clearance of a large apple tree limb blown down in the gales.

The world crisis pandemic has resulted in lockdown conditions here in the UK, so microholding activities have been useful to continue a semblance of 'usual life' - not sure how 'modern livers' without self-support sytems cope with such restrictive conditions? One author reminds that universal natural forces need to be reckoned with -----

The other natural change force the world's currently facing, temporarily taking a bit of a back seat, is the state of the planet Earth, and the urgent need for restorative action, which the current situation might yet be another 'wake-up' call - ? The british Prime Minister has said that in effect the current situation has already been a wake-up call to the fact that 'societies exist', no doubt harking back to the infamous words of a predecessor, 'There's no such thing as a society' (!)

Maybe too the (needed) balance between 'having' living and 'being' living will be looked at afresh, with consideration given as to whether there's been over emphasis on the materialistic 'having' side, to the detriment of the other needed dimensions - ? Might the individual, though 'power poor' and relatively insignificant in 'big is best' cultures, be yet important in terms of being an important key to future safety and prosperity - ?
