Uhhh!! This is SO INSPIRING!
“Innermost house is about 12 feet sqare, there is no electricity, no hot water, and yet my husband and I lead a life of luxury here… You enter timeless time here, and without the distractions of modern life its easy to forget about everything except the moment.”
Seven years ago Diana and Michael Lorence moved to a 12-foot-square home without electricity in the coastal mountains of Northern California.
They’re not back-to-the-land types- they’re not growing their own food, nor raising animals-, but, like Thoreau, they were looking for a place where they could get away from the noise of society and focus on their inner lives.
For nearly 30 years they have lived in tiny houses, often in guest homes, though their current abode is the smallest and most fitting their needs. It was designed by Michael based on their experiences living in nearly 20 tiny homes across the country before finally settling here.
“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

Something like that. (more…)

For the woman, love is always self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of identity, will, and bodily integrity, in order to fulfill and redeem the masculinity of her lover.”

Reality is not fixed if beliefs aren’t fixed. If we stay open to all possibility, then reality becomes a receiver and manifester of the imagination, which then allows reality to reflect our deepest hopes and dreams…
One of the most magical sights on a summer day or early evening is that of the dragonfly. With its shimmering wings and delicate form it seems a creature from the land of Faerie, and it is a power animal which can help to put us in touch with nature spirits. (more…)
Seven years ago Jérôme and Isabel purchased their tiny cottage and the land that sits on after finding it for sale in a free paper and immediately calling the broker. It’s located about 35 miles outside of Paris along the Loing River. The cottage doesn’t have electricity, modern heating or plumbing and the toilet is flushed the old fashioned way with buckets of water hand pumped from the local river. more…
