I’m sitting here in a nice hotel rubbing the grime off my body. Rubbing away the dirt and the filth of alternative living. It’s not like I don’t have a shower, I do. It’s a wash bin with a drain. You pour water over your head and when your done you dump out the water. no pluming, no fancy shower head but I like it that way. At night I light a candle to make my way through the dark. We have solar panels, we can watch movies and even play our vintage N64 because everyone needs guilty pleasures. We cook on a wood stove and when I’m cold I light the same fire. I walk down a humble hallway to my bedroom where I can sleep soundly at night out of the wind and rain. I remember to buy Ice for our ice box and sometimes I don’t. It’s nice this way. It’s nice to be directly in touch with the resources I use. It keeps me aware. It keeps me humble. Sometimes I get worn out and after a long day. I wish I could turn on the heat and forget my cares under a pressurized shower but when I finally get to it’s so much nicer. It’s heaven to live in the 21st century but at the end of the day I like to retreat back into my cocoon. I feel in touch with the waste I produce and I feel free knowing my home can go with me wherever I retreat to.
