1. Recognizing the life still in Things gets us thinking of all this disposable Stuff we choose to buy-why?? I admire your ability to connect with the life in things. My latest concern is that we’ve covered 40% of the oceans of the world’s surfaces with plastic garbage–40% of all of the oceans!! That’s equal to all of the land mass of the whole planet, as if every square inch of land surface is covered with plastic garbage. If we were to be willing to clean up our mess, and haul this stuff on shore, where would we put it? Plastic lasts interminably–makes Lee’s aluminum look like paper. hmmmmm
    I’m trying to totally avoid purchasing any plastic, including packaging. Gotta get off petroleum products and in our lifetimes we have lived well without plastics as kids and without the multiple cars and vehicles many families own. Friendly feet and bikes and buses here we go!

  2. You are so right, Madelyn. What if we never used anything that has not been used at least once before? Recycle, re purpose, propagate! You know, I felt at the beginning of this current economic crisis, people were being forced to think differently, and were kind of getting in to it. Canning was getting popular again. Now we are going back to our old unthinking ways. Who decided for this disposable society for us? The capitalists at the turn of the twentieth century?

  3. I have a channel glide loveseat where the glide does not work … can you tell me how the mechanism works?
