"What would people say?" is such a tough thing to deal with, and it causes a lot of anxiety and fear.  I wish I could say I have a thick skin, like Sepp Holzer or Paul, but I'm mostly just doing my best to ignore the looks from other people. It's still hard to not want to just run away, because I still get little reminders from people that "you're not normal" and "you're doing things differently from SOCIETY". As there are still people who have not seen the things I do, and so there's still a fear that I'll have to endure another comment, another look, and that still hurts a bit. But I am glad that Sepp Holzer works to help people overcome that fear in their farming and shows farmers there is another way. That one phrase just resonated with me. And in Desert or Paradise, Sepp Holzer did mention about not living in fear; that's a difficult thing, but we're working on it.
