Homework changed my life. After reading sociologist Juliet Schor’s book Plenitude, I felt called to action. Or better yet, I felt called out — called out on the ways I wasn’t taking responsibility for my own actions in the world and the way I was building my life. I heard the words there’s no excuse echoing in my head for days. My goal in writing this blog is to explore ideas about the “new” economy, sharing, community, self-provisioning as a way of living “green”, and trying to build a satisfying life that avoids the trap of working oneself to death in order to live. I think it’s gonna be a bit messy, but so are most fun things.
