This picture of my uncle is probably my favourite photo of all time; it evokes such a feeling of joy and childhood nostalgia. My mom recently sent me a bunch of old photos from their homesteading days, and it has me reflecting on where my desire to live simply comes from, and whether someone who doesn’t eat animal products can get away with calling themselves a homesteader.
