the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

the world is in revolt....

The worlds in revolt and my zuchinnis are growing nicely.
Occupy: your homestead.
Using modern technology I was chatting with my older son last night as he was preparing a fire in his stove to keep the house warm in WA. It was 45 degrees in the early evening. It was 78 here at the stead. The subject of the Occupy movement was on both our minds.
I realized at that moment that the Occupy movement is not new. We have been doing it for years. Prepping, self-reliance, non-dependence from the corporate cloud is part of our psyche. As it should be.
People are scared. Turn fear into strength by becoming more independent and self reliant. Get creative.. Remember success is 99 percent failure. Your homestead is your laboratory. Experiment.
