I like photos like these.
In mid-2008 my husband and I decided to simplify our lives and build a tiny house (less than 200 sq. ft.) You can follow our journey here. We love our 2 pit bulls (one is rescued from Hurricane Katrina), we grow a garden and preserve a lot of food, we work part-time so we don't end up acquiring things we don't need...basically we're bums. On purpose. With purpose.
I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
~Frank Lloyd Wright
Strange is our situation here upon Earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. However, there is one thing that we do know, that we are here for the sake of others. Above all, for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy., ~Albert Einstein
Look. Pay attention. See the unnecessary death and suffering. We don’t have to contribute or help to keep it going. We can stop being a part of this. And so, that’s what we try to do.
"We were not born critical of existing society. There was a moment in our lives (or a month, or a year) when certain facts appeared before us, startled us, and then caused us to question beliefs that were strongly fixed in our consciousness-embedded there by years of family prejudices, orthodox schooling, imbibing of newspapers, radio, and television."
"The point of public relations slogans like 'Support our troops'; is that they don't mean anything... That's the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody's going to be against, and everybody's going to be for. Nobody knows what it means, because it doesn't mean anything. Its crucial value is that it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something: Do you support our policy? That's the one you're not allowed to talk about."
Thanks to AlbertaFifty for the gift of a pro account in 2005, which got me hooked on flickr.
