Watching #livingwiththeamish...

...it really is a fascinating series. There's a lot about the Amish way of life that I find really appealling. Not everything - I doubt I could cope with a lot of the manual labour the men do (barn raising?), nor would Sarah take kindly to being expected to do the domestic chores (swap us round, though, and we'd be in our element), and doing without TV, the interwebz, my music collection and gadgets in general would, I suspect, drive me stir crazy, but even, some aspects of that simplistic lifestyle seem very pleasant. I suspect it'd be a good way to refresh and revitalise my faith.

On which note, Sarah's been talking about going on a retreat next year (possibly a silent one). I might join her. A whole lifetime would drive me mad, but a week or two could be very useful...

  • Life on board

    The Cabin Pressure fan in me is taking great delight in addressing Sarah as "Skip," since she spends most of the time behind the wheel of the boat…

  • Maybe I'm too literal-minded...

    ...but I feel very strongly that a place with a name like Horsey Mere really ought to have actual, y'know, horses...

  • Happy Star Wars Day!!!

    May the Fourth be with you!
