I’ve always said that i’d like to buy a forest and live in it. There are several reasons for this which I will explain in this short article. The idea of living in a forest apparently tells people that I basically seem to want the life of a nomadism hobbit of some kind. You know, the usual visions of living in a tree house without basic sanitary products or even electricity, because well, isn’t that the whole point of buying a whole forest.
Yes, one reason a person might buy a forest is for the sole reason of getting away from all the craziness that comes with modern life. Getting away from the horrible news everyday, the judgments of other people and people that feel the need to post every single racist or bigoted thought they have on social media for the adoration of their dumb followers.
In many ways to get away from all this would sound like the ultimate dream for many people who still think in a sane and friendly way. You may realise that in fact part of me does want to purchase a secluded forest for this very reason. Yes, these things annoy me like they should with everyone else, but it’s definitely not the main reason. Those people will never force me to live in a forest because it’s so bad… Not yet at least.
My forest will be partly a place of wholly free thinking. A place to be myself and not be judged by the expectations of our harsh society. It’s hard everyday when you feel like everyone is out to judge you. Although I try my hardest not to look as though I care about the opinions of the general public there are a lot of times where i subconsciously find myself walking quickly with my head down as a way to rush through crowds.
I think that’s one of the hardest things about living on a planet that is overpopulated and you don’t really like hanging around most humans for too long. So the forest will be a place for a select few to hang out with their free thoughts. Free thought, I think, is very important. It allows our creative juices to well and truly come pouring out of us when we let them in a non judgmental and free thinking environment.
Another reason i’d like to buy a forest is the fact that I can build whatever house I want in it. Obviously there are limitations depending on the place I buy a forest in, but I'm quite sure that it will be a tree house with bridges taking you from one tree to another. Home would be above ground, a safer alternative to living on the forest floor, which by the way, will be covered in many, many flowers. Everything built in my forest will contribute to the main aim and point of it’s existence, to provide a safer home to be myself and be creative. A forest of free thinking that I will be happy in.
