I came across this article from Aeon magazine on Twitter, shared by my friend Jen Maidenberg. Have a read - I think the author really needs to hear the word "Permaculture"... CLICK HERE

It sounds like he's struggling to survive, but doesn't realise the potential in what he has got. Indeed, he sounds exactly the sort of chap who could benefit greatly from being a hermit curmudgeon host to a young enterprising permapprentice who could hook up with some of the farmers nearby also.

Man, that guy is me, right down to the tension between hours spent at the computer maintaining what's left of my income and finances, and hours spent outside with hand tools learning how to eat from this land in case the ladt of the income fails.

I'd like like to have beers with that man.
