One of our favourite Japanese movies, Little Forest, has a lengthy bike riding opening scene. The main character, Ichiko, is riding on a narrow road, lots of greenery around her & wind in her hair. She stops in a place overlooking rice fields and a small house surrounded by mountains and trees.
As the movie goes on and we watch her living in that small house, farming, cooking and enjoying life. It’s hard not to start picturing yourself in her place. But what are the chances of that actually happening? In our case – low, very low.
