We just found out from our news anchor that we’ll be on the morning news tomorrow – channel 15 ABC in Phoenix – between 6 and 7 am – PST. Exciting! We’re going to go over to my great-uncle Stew’s house to watch, as we don’t have television. Early rise… but it will be worth it! we’ll post the segment video on here too as soon as we get it.
I’ve been thinking a lot about living small, and how I’ve noticed my own worries about it hinging around [western] societal norms. Are we crazy to live in such a small space? Most people I tell say something like “oh we’d kill each other in ten minutes if I had to live in 200 sf with my husband.” Oh. Well hopefully that doesn’t happen! Sometimes it’s feels like a step backward, moving into a smaller home, without all my furniture, less space to organize… less space to fill. But today I remembered this quote that I love:
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
Not to say that anyone living in a home larger than our Tiny House is sick… but there is something wrong with a world that has filled the ocean with plastic. I can already see how smaller living is going to curb my consumerism.
hope everyone is well,
