Hi. I'm Diana Oehrli.

This blog used to be called Life in the Swiss Alps and it has now morphed into The Life of DEO (Yes, I'm a big Monty Python fan.) 

Here, you'll find sections on life in the Swiss Alps and on the New England coast.

It is about slowing down and taking the time to enjoy our world and each other. It's an attempt to share a disappearing Swiss alpine lifestyle with readers who are concerned about their children's future and who are curious about life in one of the most beautiful and efficient places in the world. It features articles on: food, culture, health, parenting, education, green living, habits, spirituality as well as a little bit of history and politics mixed in.

You'll also find a section on life by the New England coast.
