While I find Ms Pick's story fascinating, I also think that the lifestyle that she's adopted would be very isolating. Can you imagine never being able to go and meet friends for lunch (can't drive a car, can't eat cooked food) or spending your days doing the laundry by hand? I don't even like doing the laundry now, and it takes hardly any effort with my washing machine! Obviously Ms Pick is someone who is secure in her decision to give up the conveniences of the modern world, but I wouldn't be able to hack it. I do think, however, that it is extremely admirable that someone would take on as much responsibility for their role in polluting the environment as Ms Pick does, and it inspires me to try and take on just a little bit more for my role, which is clearly a lot larger than Ms Pick's.
