Everything is slower here

  In these crannies of the mountains, the mode of supplying elemental needs is still slow, laborious, personal… There is a deep pervasive satisfaction in these simple acts. Whether you give it conscious thought or not, you are touching life, and something within you knows it (p.82) Nan Shepherd, ‘The Living Mountain’ Inshriach Bothy The walk from the wood store to the axe’s haggar at the chopping block; the careful a
