inspiring moments that inspire


The moments we cherish and remember forever seem to happen when time stops.

We get drawn out of our skull into what's around us, the distractions normally running through our head are gone, and we're purely present. Musicians talk about being in "the pocket" and the indescribable feeling in that space. 

There in some pocket of space and time, we're something like truly happy. We feel wholesome, fulfilled, invincible. Unfortunately, most of life today seems to be one big distraction from all that.

modern.peasant is a blog created for one purpose: to draw in to those moments, not distract.

They don't exist here..or anywhere on a screen.

What you'll find here simply points to them, and begs you to draw into your own.
