I completely understand where she's coming from, from the yearning for a simpler life, hopes for personal development, etc. Heck, I've talked about how every now and again, I think about starting a goat farm (ironically, I'd have to fall face first into a pile of cash to be able to make that work first). Even then though, I don't think I'd ever go all in on something like she did, at least not without a lot of knowledge first or a group of partners that can support me and show me the way.

The closest Dala and I ever get to anything like she's attempted is take our dog on long walks in the park, hang out in the backyard, and try our best to grow vegetables like tomatoes and peppers. I heard a saying recently, I can't remember where, that went something along the lines of "You don't have to be self sustainable in everything, a few things is more than enough." There's probably some pretty good wisdom to that.
