Encouraging words

 

Thank you for your editor’s note “Keeping up with the changing West” (June 2021). As the editor of a regional weekly focused on agriculture, farming life and related politics in Southern and Western Norway, your words confirm to me what also our magazine Bondevennen (“Farmer’s Friend”) really is and should be all about: celebrating our lands, and safeguarding them for all living creatures, today and tomorrow. Here, too, the pace of change is accelerating, and any mention of “restraint” is quickly and nervously brushed off as negativity and a hindrance to “development.” Your words are an encouragement to keep on conveying this very message, all the same.
