I have been reading a book recently named The Good Life, Helen and Scott Nearing's Sixty Years of Self Sufficient Living. The book is about the Nearings and how they set out to make a life for them selves in the Green Mountains of Vermont during the great depression. They were from New York City and decided to check out of society and the monetary system when they saw the whole shebang starting to crumble. I have been very inspired by the book and hope to someday live my life much like theres. I came across to very inspiring to me sentences tonight and thought I would share them with the blooging audience. The first: " We should live as decently, kindly, justly, orderly, and as efficently as possible". The second: " Whatever the circumstances it is better to love, create, and construct than to hate, undermine, and destroy, or, what may be worse ignore".

Now imagine a world were everyone abided by the above quotes and showed respect to there fellow man. It would be wonderful if people would just stop and ponder if what they are doing is right or just right for themselves at that moment.

Peace and Love, JOEY.
