Recently I read a new book (surprise surprise). This one originally intrigued me with its subtitle, “Achieving financial independence through simple living.” I mistakenly thought this was going to be about homesteading, and related projects. It was not. Despite my initial disappointment, it turned out to be a great read.
Book That is.
I'm sorry. I know I already posted today, but I also started in on a new book and wanted to give you the opportunity to read along with me.
I am glad to see that despite the opposition, and initial resistance, the town of Hardwick has continued down the path of community, and food revolution. I hope to see more communities here in New England, and across the country learn to unite, and work towards creating such cultural norms. In fact, a lot of the happenings in Hardwick are the kind of changes I hope to create here, in our little corner of the woods, on a much, much smaller scale. It was encouraging to see that they are happening on a large scale relatively close to home.
I finally made it back to the library. It’s been a good 6 months or so. I forgot how much I love reading. Well, actually, the weather has kept me away a bit too. I like to walk to the library, so I don’t go when it gets cold. But today I just had to get out of the house. It’s been raining and grey for several days and I think I went stir crazy.
I’ll check back in when I’ve finished. If you’ve read the book, or if you read it, let me know what you think. Let’s start a conversation!
