I live in Aveyron, France, with my husband Tom. We have lived here since October 2012 and have created our own home from a very old building that once had pigs living on the ground floor! Our aim is to live a simple, but comfortable life. This is partly because it is the way we enjoy living but also to provide an example of a different way of living that is hopefully a positive one!
I am passionate about the environment and very concerned about the harm that we are causing to our planet. I believe that we are at a point in history where we have the opportunity to make a real positive difference to the future of the world and feel optimistic that it is possible for this to happen if enough people want it to.
I am also concerned about the effect that modern living and expectations has on people's happiness and their ability to be creative and to fully participate in life. I therefore am motivated to write to try and improve the planet and the lives of those who live on it.
