city and country

In Uncategorized on October 1, 2011 at 07:53

I see how in the Russian countryside the city folk dreams to live close to the nature, not just stay here on holidays, but most of the village and small town dwellers wants to move to the city, to give up their land, to fill up yet another huge ugly apartment block.

So, I’m bothered with a question: Why people who live close to nature, see the beauty every day, have fresh air to breath and birds to listen to, are often unhappy, jealous and hostile? Are they already so deeply affected by modern consumer culture watching TV and doing their shopping in towns and cities?

I think almost any way to earn money is hard, one way or another. It may be the stress (separation from family and home) or unhealthy lifestyle instead of the hard physical work, but the hard bit is still here.

Its just like people don’t feel any inspiration from marvelous countryside around them, instead they think themselves being on some unfortunate margin of modern society.

No Wallet

“This morning I dropped my wallet between the car seat as I was dropped off at the train station by my girlfriend. I had no cell phone and no money. On my own, I would have had to wait the whole day for her to finish work before walking across the city back to her place. Three random acts of kindness in about an hour got me back on my feet again. Since my girlfriend’s cell phone would be long distance, I couldn’t use the phones at the train station. A complete stranger offered me to use his phone, without me asking. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an answer. I had my laptop so I asked for directions to the nearest Starbucks. The friendly manager was more than willing to let me use their free wireless service, even though I was not a customer. He brought me a complimentary tea while I texted my girlfriend online to be able to get back to her house. I figured out the bus schedule and had asked my girlfriend to have her landlord provide me with a spare key. Although I didn’t have any money, the bus driver let me ride for free. It saved me a couple hours worth of walking. We are so dependent on money and technology. When we are unexpectedly without it, it seems like we are completely lost. Three random acts of kindness helped me to get back home safely. I can’t wait to pass them on to the next person I meet who is in need.”
