Homes vs. Housing




We found in the last couple of pages that:


“Contentment is the greatest treasure.”

– Lao Tzu


Jim Davis had an amusing way of putting it:


“Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.”

In the second part of this series, “Contentment”

we found also that:

“The right to happiness is fundamental.”

– Anna Pavlova













Not dependent upon any outside factor.

In most cultures of this planet throughout time, everyone had intrinsic value. Self-esteem was not an issue. (Remember the Dalai Lama’s reaction to the very idea that such might not be the case?)

Neither was a home.

If you were the type of person who by necessity or inclination worked part time, then your home was a hut.

If you were both naturally industrious and healthy, your home was a slightly nicer hut.

as has been mentioned in the foregoing pages

has lived in huts.


And in teepees,

and geodesic domes.

These simpler homes

when a harmonious spirit prevails within them

have much more to recommend them than one might think who had never experienced any of them personally.

Most of them are illegal in our own culture, of course. And dangerous.

Everything’s very dangerous among we “enlightened”, “civilized” moderns, isn’t it? And getting more so every day…



(Is that okay with you, dear reader?

Something you want to roll over for? Do nothing about?

Something you want later on to have to tell the reporter you “didn’t really notice”? “Didn’t think much about at all?”

Well, is it?)







It is for the bone-chilling reason illustrated in the above chart, among many others

that having no home whatsoever

~ at least for the middle-aged, semi-invalid Caucasian female which yours foolie is ~

constitutes true suffering.
