I just finished reading The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living. It was fine, I guess. I never really got into it. A childless couple who are into conceptual art and electronics, living in the dessert and essentially homesteading. It’s wonderful that there are so many ways for people to step to the side of consumer culture and take more control and responsibility for their own lives. They just came at it from a very different angle, most of which doesn’t really apply to my life or really appeal to me either. I think it’s very unlikely that I’m going to be doing a lot of prickly pear cacti wildcrafting in the mountains of New England!
