Keeping it simple

Watched a doc on the Amish last night and found myself sympathizing with them. If your lifestyle is to get everywhere in a horse and buggy, that's not easy to do today. I mean, cars have gotten so complicated you need computer hookups to work on them. Gone are the days of streets filled with teens working on their cars. Self-reliance gets more difficult and may in fact be damn near impossible today. A sorry state of affairs in many ways. Our values go down the tube with our quantitative progress. This is going to hit me very personally soon enough. I can see it coming.
