Sometimes an itch just has to be scratched. This Middle White sow has been lying on her side for the last two weeks patiently allowing her litter of nine new-born piglets to feed. On her first taste of freedom there was one thing which she just had to do- scratch that itch. No-one would say that the Middle White is a handsome beast but there was something beautiful in the look of pleasure which spread over her face as that itch got scratched.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
