When I day dream about the perfect life I see myself in a small cabin in the woods. It is next to a rushing stream carrying glacial melt water down the mountainside. I would spend my days hunting, fishing and gathering wood for the fire. At night I would sit down and read a good book and then do it all again the next day.

I love my family and all, but I still can't help daydreaming of being alone in the woods relying on myself and my own initiative to survive.

What is your idea of a perfect life?

Joe rogan had a recent podcast with sabastian junger(I think)where he said we are not yet evolved for agriculture. And that lag plays out in depression and suicide.

In a nut shell people need a small interdependent group where they are trusted and valued. A common goal that everyone contributes to and an outside threat that unites the group.

I think you are missing the threat that unites y'all.

I think we could replicate it through extreme sports, highly competitive physical sports and camping trip type stuff.

For me, living on an upper floor of a high-rise condominium with my early 30's boyfriend. Furnishing the place as a trendy lounge area. Having people over to party with.working in interior design and cooking.

You're right.

I think many of us are missing the challenge of a life worth living. I like the idea of being alone or in a small community.

What you describe would be perfection for myself as well, except I would want my wife with me.

Kids are grown so they could come visit when they want.

They would have to leave the electronic brainwashing devices behind though.

I would love to have the wife with me, but her idea of camping is the Holiday Inn.

Hmm, something about living in a large apartment building always felt strange to me.

Could be because I sometimes have anxiety and like to be able to move freely, quickly.

Could be because I also don't like a lot of stairs.


Also, that recent apartment fire didn't help.

Seems so confining to me, I could do ground floor or a few floors up. Otherwise metallicus' is more my style.

I've only seen high rise condos on tv, but never have had the opportunity to live in one.

To own my own bookstore.

Have a small house on the beach.

Unlimited booze and cool jazz piped into where ever I'm at.

My idea of an ideal life is small community with close knit families that look out for each other.. and are self sufficient to an extent that their communities provide what they need.

Of course in my ideal life I would have a strong relationship with a loving spouse and our children would grow up rich in love and a desire to serve others. I would love my children to go off to good colleges in whatever fields they chose to serve humanity, but always remain true to the small town community ideals and way of life.

Think Thomas Kincaid (kinkade)? type villages with alot of great people who sincerely care about each other and that is Utopia for me 😊

Win the lottery so I can move to a small English village with a pub, shop, post office and a little bit of breathing room.
A wood fire and a library room all of my own.
Maybe a dog but definitely a couple of cats.

Most important a miracle surgery to fix my back so I can use a bicycle again!

Also...world peace, an end to crime and free and fair society...

You did say dream didn't you?

Edit adding...
I'm noticing just lately that quite a few posters on ATS are big readers and book lovers...that goes a long way towards making me a bit happier in my current life circumstances.

lock the house down every so often so we can take a trip

sounds about right to me
