    I hope to be in some little farmhouse in Canada, with my husky dogs and my horse, woman and kids. But i guess it will be before 10 years since i'm leaving this horrible country next year

    If we're dreaming, then I'd like to live in a village in the west of Ireland, the Dingle peninsula is really beautiful, I was down there a few weeks ago but anywhere with a bit of scenery would do equally as well.

    My deam as far a traveling would be to have enough money and time to journey all over Europe, and then to regularly revisit any places which I particularly liked and stay for a month or two. When travaling outside of Ireland for more than a few months I tend to get homesick, so I would want the freedom to be able to return home fairly quickly, whenever the need arose.
    If I ever raise children I won't want to bring them up outside of Ireland, to me that would feel totally wrong, I don't think I would enjoy watching my own flesh and blood developing and taking on the identity, accents and mannerisms of a foreign culture, even a European one.

    Therefore, if I ever manage to escape Dublin I think I might end up moving back near to the county where I was born, even though that place may be an almost flat nondescript midland county., the region of my birth will always be my one true home. :
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    My life? A lawyer I shall be.



    What do you have if you have 1000 lawyers buried up to their necks in sand?

    A remote house in the depths of Finnish woodlands sitting by a quiet lake has been a thought I've fancied for some time now or alternatively, a house in some peaceful village, far away from the gray cities' stressing sweaty noise and the rigid atmosphere alike to that of an assembly line. Maybe a small farm there, living with a woman if I ever come across 'the right one', raising a kid or two, making music, keeping myself fit, hiking and enjoying nature, things like that. That would the dream of mine. Actually, I do now have a goal related to that dream, that I will earn enough money to build/buy a house in the countryside by not spending it in some nonsense like cars.

    In a few years I think I will have travelled around Europe a bit with my friend, as that would be rather refreshing and help me have a broader understanding of the world.

It's funny how everything can be so perfect, and then turn to sh*t in the blink of an eye. :
    That sounds so idyllic, and so sad to have lost it:icon_sad:

    And you owned such a home at so young an age, and it is gone as well?

    Blütwulfin...That's kind of odd.I've spoken to a german girl during the spring that also wants to emigrate to Sweden, she was studying to get some title within the forest industry, might come to see me in august, although I guess it isn't you...

    Your translation was quite accurate, I do intend on raising crops... I don't suppose I will be a full-fledged (professional) farmer though, as there is a lot of competition between farming outfits, and I come from a family of farmers and have learned that it's quite a tough life - filled with uncertainty... But, I do hope to have a moderately large farm with several different crops, fruit orchards, vineyards and also livestock. I guess, ideally, I'm aiming for self-sufficience in the area of foodstuffs, and also sell my surplus crops for supplemental income.

    Land is still relatively affordable in this part of the country, so I would like to own about 500 acres - mostly pasture and lowlands, but also some timber and forest land, as I just couldn't survive without my tress . I am very deeply connected with the land, trees, plants, soil... I have always had a special way with making things grow and thrive, and since I grew up on farms, and in farming communities, I've learned a lot about raising crops and the subjects of farming and agriculture have always been very near to my heart. As humans, one of our most powerful gifts is the ability to till the land, sow seed and reap the nourishing and healthful benefits of our toiling.

    So, Rehnskiöld, you are a farmer then? What crop(s) do you grow, if I may ask? Here, farming has become a very hi-tech operation, and a lot of the most arduous work is done with the help of machinery (and Mexican migrant workers eyes, and it's not at all like it used to be in the old days. What is your farm like?

    My fondest memories are those spent with my knees buried in the earth and my hands blistered and cut from pulling out star thistle weeds from between my Grandpas endless rows of sugar beets. Farming is a good life... a hard life, but a very rewarding one and I have but the deepest respect for those who choose to work the land when it would be so much easier to leave it to someone else. (hehe... I've become pitifully nostalgic thinking about this subject. )

    "we are as gods and might as well get good at it."
    did resonate in me.
    living in the piedmont of the carolinas,
    my grandfather needed to grow corn
    for the animals to winter-over.

    which is why i chose southern california
    (and baja): to avoid the necessity
    of mono-cropping to feed the animals.
    this climate allows the animals
    to feed their selfs, year-round.

    each night, the land (here) cools
    and the ocean retains it's warmth.
    that causes warm moist air to blow
    from the ocean on to the land, nightly.
    any cool surface collects condensation,
    which drips to the ground in reliable irrigation.

    the beavers have the right idea:
    we should not be allowing all of that water
    to escape, back to the sea. shape the land slightly,
    so the water runs not to the center,
    but to the edges of your valley.
    a dry-stack rock-wall along the ridge-line
    to catch the last bit of moisture from the night-breeze
    after chevron-rows of trees pointing up the valley
    evenly rain on the pastures from their drip-lines.

    some specialty-gardening for sale to restaurants
    and moving the hot-wire, each day,
    to make sure they pasture the grass evenly
    - is about all the work
    that i think a god should be doing.

    i would stand on the plow-horse's back
    as my grandfather was plowing that corn-field.
    shucking the ears and stacking the shocks
    took days. then you fed it to the animals.
    mono-cropping is long, hard, dirty work.

    a man has the ability to choose his environment
    and shape it to his needs, wants and desires.

    when you would gaze at the stars, aspirationally,
    turn your mind's eye inward
    - for you are made of star-dust.
