Next day, to Letterkeen with John because the kids all mutinied and Joe feeling a bit chesty but we reckon even if a few of we adults go alone, we’re still showing them what’s possible. Hope to fire their interest in the spring… very beautiful and peaceful, so remote. Thought I saw a figure among the rocks high above us which got us wondering how many people might be living wild in Ireland (or indeed, across the developed world) right now. John said there’s a loch up in a hollow on one of the heights that has an island on it, and apparently that island was occupied in ancient times. We talked about the animals that would have been here then. Then started talking about Jared Diamond’s new book, and collapse, and anti-fragility, and how to create resilience and I talked about Dan Ariely and living with pain and learning not to resist but to count, in order to put a frame around what is going on. All these ideas seem to feed into each other, and into the Yoga and Zen ideas about how to deal with the painful experiences that we tend to label crises.
