Do you have a sweater or other garment made for you by a relative or close friend? How does that feel to use when compared with something from a store? Imagine if, rather than wearing blinders to remain ignorant of the grotesque production processes that made all of your stuff, you could celebrate and enjoy the vision of its creation you hold in your mind like that grandmother-knit sweater! What if you could feel that warmth for each article in your household: clothes, plates, chairs, blanket, bicycles? Each thing imbued with an awareness of its loving, familiar source. And what if it was all free? You could ask for anything you needed, knowing that your own contribution was likewise used with respect and care. This is basically the life I envision and propose. I aim to inspire change: to advocate strongly for a gentler, more direct and honest way of living and making.
