Y is for Yurt and Yearn
See a gallery of yurts here! See Wikipedia's yurt information here.
Something must be blowing through my head, rattling bones and whistling yesterday's tunes.
For the last ten years, I've yearned to devote myself to off-the-grid living, simplifying and downsizing. Shuffling stuff from corner to corner doesn't seem to cut it.
What if I had to get rid of things I don't plan to use the rest of my life? What if I moved into a yurt? Or a cozy one room edifice where things I needed were within reach, the light was natural (mostly) and the electric bill forgot to show up? What if??
Once, with a little software app, I designed a perfect home. When I dreamed my way through the finished plan I noticed there was no sink from which to draw water for coffee, tea or soup. I should take courses in design or technical illusions.
Maybe if I would quit wishing (see the snail house W for ABC Wednesday) I could actually accomplish something. But maybe not.
May 2010 help you realize your deepest Yearns!
