Beginning streaks of forest crimson, winked
with orange and gold in a crystal dawn. This is our sanctuary
here at Merrily Farms, beautiful in all seasons, but today,
the summer solstice, of all days the mountains are a delight.
They are cool, magnificent with their never ending change
and so peaceful in the dawn.
This is why after thirty years of successful
city living Merri and I moved here for a simpler life here
at Merrily Farms. Because you may have similar desires
we have created a sanctuary of peace, quiet and green that
you can now share here on the farm.
Plus we have classes and many types of
workshops and courses on health and wealth you can attend.
If you have been yearning for a sanctuary
away from the hustle and bustle of modern life day don't
be surprised. Simple living is a growing trend.
A USA Today front page article, entitled, "Tech's
tyranny provokes revolt" highlights this fact and
points out that 108 million investors no longer desire
to get onto the internet. 60% of consumers have stopped
buying the latest high tech gadgets and devices. 42% of
PC owners believe that technology is advancing too quickly.
40% of PC owners believe that technology is too complicated
and that last year 29 million adults stopped using the
The article tells of one Silicon Valley
executive who despite a big salary and Wharton MBA lives
in a one bedroom apartment furnished only with history
books and a used TV. This executive drives a ten year old
Nova and he and his wife sleep on the floor on a comforter
and two pillows. This family feels that technology is a
tool to make things of lasting value, not something to
enslave them. The article tells of another high tech employee
who has cut back on T.V watching, stopped carrying his
cell phone and shifted from auto commuting to riding his
bike five miles to work each day. As the world's pace quickens
and multi-tasking overwhelms the majority, others are moving
in the opposite way. All of us want to escape sometimes.
Simplicity is in. We all need
a sanctuary where we can immerse ourselves in nature
and recharge our batteries.
Here you can have it all. There is no
TV and not even much radio. At night instead we watch the
Milky Way and clear, bright stars. They replace the nonsense
of the mass media. Their message is so much more clear!
But we do have broadband and
free long distance calls!
Our water is pure, spring fed. No chlorine
from these mountain springs guaranteed! Cell phones don't
work up here, unless you climb the highest ridge. The most
high tech thing we see or hear is a distant tractor.
Join us while it’s hot down below.
Take gentle hikes over the creek and through the library
to the office in lieu of commuting and road rage. You might
even scare up the Great Blue Heron that lives at the end
of the creek.
Instead of waiting in long lines at the
super market, stroll through the garden and pick up thick
cucumbers, crisp, fresh lettuce and sweet ears of corn.
We love this simplicity and bet (have bet and are betting)
that you will too.
You want to spend some time with Merri
