Somewhere Else

December 14, 2012 in by webmaster

Alex Morton: Years ago, my wife and I were part of what was then called the back to the land movement. We moved to a little farm in Nova Scotia, intent on becoming spiritually enlightened, in-tune with nature, and as self-sufficient as possible. We would live a simple life, grow all our own food, chop wood for heat, and sell macramé, pottery, and candles at craft markets for cash. It sounded reasonable at the time.

But the struggle for self-sufficiency and enlightenment was overshadowed by a mad scramble for bucks to keep the tofu and brown rice on the table and pay for endless repairs to the truck. Eventually, we realized that if we were going to have to grub for dollars, it was better to go where there were more to be found.

Now, we’re doing it again. Only this time it’s on a tiny Greek island where people live decades longer than the norm. If we can somehow make it all work, maybe we can live a few years extra, too.

Somewhere Else will soon be published. If you’d like to know when it’s available, I can drop you a line.
