The Russian peasant’s workout

Take 5mins today to read this lovely article written by my friend Jez Hastings for the New York Times which captures the beauty of scything.

Working slowly and deliberately, with little noise, allows me to be part of nature, rather than striving against it. It’s a dance of sorts. The dance of the mower and the grass.
