Corn Harvest Time in Amish Country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania

While driving from Maine to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (with a few stops in between) we came across this scene in Amish Country just outside of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was fascinating to get a glimpse of this anachronism in 21st Century America. Even though we just spent a few hours in this area, it made me reflect upon how important it is to not spend every day caught up in the chaos that is typical of life today, but remember to slow down and enjoy some simplicity every now and then.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
