Did any of you see the article on Yahoo about this Mexican couple who have lived under a rock for thirty years? I’m serious….check it out here!
There is this 130 foot boulder, and like fifty years ago this guy saw it and fell in love with it, so he eventually bought the land and made a home with adobe walls underneath this boulder.
Okay, a bit extreme for all of us, but what a great metaphor for Living Simple!
Here is this guy, his wife, and the land around him. That’s all they need. They have food, they have shelter, and they have love. Pretty simple, right? I wonder what they think of computers and cell phones. I wonder what they think of televisions and designer clothes? I wonder what they think of going into debt for things that are not needed?
No, there is no way in hell I could live like they do; my first problem would be the rattlesnakes and scorpions that must visit them daily. However, I certainly understand the thinking behind it, and in three years Bev and I will pull the plug on this lifestyle and simplify big time.
Three years! Give me an internet provider and I can write anywhere.
Life is good! Sending hugs and love to all my friends.
