Wonderful Academic And Mother, Emma Orbach Shuns Society And Enjoys A Simple Back To Basics Lifestyle In A Self Built Mud/Straw House...
And unless someone goes to visit her on her property on the lower slopes of Mount Carningli near the Welsh county of Pembrokeshire tells her she'll never know as she shuns all types
And I don't think the postal service delivers.
I also admire this wonderful, inspiring mother of three and Oxford graduate with a degree in Chinese and an eccentric childhood for having the guts and the moral fortitude to eschew a life of plenty to be her own person, to walk to the beat of a different drum, to be true to herself
and her own values.
Emma Orbach has shunned society and I can't say I blame her. She lives in a roundhouse made from mud, straw and horse manure she fashioned herself with her own hands.
The same hands that milk the goats, that collect the eggs from her seven chickens, the hands that collect water from the stream, the hands that lovingly tend her horses and chop her firewood. The same hands that play the harp and her instrument of wind.
Emma is a Renaissance woman.
She is a victor not a victim.
She is a wonderful example to so many.
Emma has spent more than thirteen years living a simple, almost medieval existence with no electricity and growing her own food.
There's more about Emma here and here.
Often referred to as Mrs Bilbo Baggins, Emma Orbach lives peacefully and quietly in her Hobbit House named Tir Ysbrydol meaning 'Spirit Land' in Welsh, without the noise and distractions of television, computers, social media and the woeful world news.
Emma, you are an eccentric inspiration.
And I applaud you...
