International Investments - Invest in Sanctuaries

By Gary Scott

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 net.

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 and me, you are invited to join us at the courses we conduct here on the farm. If you can't attend a course, but need to just get away and want to enjoy a peaceful, quiet of farm life, we have farm houses, cabins and a wonderfully converted guest barn where you can stay. Send Merri a note and ask her about our R&R at Merrily Farms. merri@littlehorsecreek.com You can see beautiful images of Merrily Farms at www.littlehorsecreek.com

There is an investment benefit as well. As society shifts and the demand for simplicity grows so too do our land values around here. Come visit and look for real estate investments such as the bargains offered by real estate broker, Trey Morrison.
