Check out this really cool short documentary film called “Twenty Eight Feet – Life On A Little Wooden Boat” directed by Kevin Frazier. It’s about a guy named David Welsford, who has given up the luxuries of land in search of happiness and adventure on a 50-year-old wooden boat he restored from a scrap heap.
This film is awesome and really captures the spirit of the nomadic lifestyle, be it on a boat, an RV or whatever. David talks about simple living, freedom and independence. He talks about how he works to live and doesn’t live to work, which is a big problem in our society. I think we have lost the understanding of the purpose of work somehow. Many of us have been convinced that life is about working for some future happiness and its to the point where people feel they have to be working all the time. Anyway, if you want to understand the nomadic lifestyle or if you just want to be inspired to pursue it, watch this film. The music’s great too by the way from Bahamas, Acres & Acres and Ben Howard.
