    What a new idea for me of paying attention to what is around me, and what I can do to utilize it. At the very least, what a gift she gives us of just looking and soaking in what's around us!

    Our brain often misguides us on what truly makes us happy. While we constantly chase money, power and fame in urban life, true happiness springs from living a simple, self-sufficient and sustainable life. There are enough joy in nature, if you can look out its details as Alice does.

    A delightful little film about one woman’s idyllic life on a wonderful plot of land. Of course most of us don’t have the same blessing now opportunity., especially if we are responsible for others humans. But we can take much from how Alice lives and apply it to our own lives in sustainable living.
