How technology can make simplicity attainable
A pastoral life in rural Connecticut - long idealised by purists and perfectionists to embrace the simple life in style. Ironically these days it is technology, which is helping to ensure that this traditional “simplicity” is attainable and has a future.
Pride in the beauty of an artisan built dry stonewall, or a ‘folly’ built in the moment with logs culled from your own land will never become outdated or over-rated.
Without modern advancement, such as storage tanks, irrigation, precision lawn cutting mowers, modern lighting, solar panels, deer fencing etc. This lifestyle would fall off for our contemporary lifestyles of today.
These days, simple is made 'simpler' because of technology, which is why ‘bucolic’ seems feasible to many in the future.
