How did you come to be not-partnered?
I found this video entertainingly instructive.
Then to prison.
I have a Internet business so the then-husband didn't need to work, other than farm setup for production, cut some wood and such…but he drank, secretly. I found out about it when he attempted suicide and he got sent to jail for his troubles.
Since his time to be served was 5 months to a year and he had no interest in anything, but to drink n chase, he didn't want any "ties" to hold him down so he just signed off on everything and left for another state that reduced his time where he can do "his thing".
All I could say is WOW, the biggest offense I have to society is a library fine in 81…that was my wild year.
Great find – not as "mate-bait", but as one of the more articulate encapsulations of Western evo/devolution. Would like to share with our new PP group, formed as a result of latest Rowe Group Seminar.
Thank you for this link. Already sending it on. I teach Ecological Footprint, Anthrosphere and Life Cycle Analysis (cradle to grave) of Products to middle school students… show them where all this STUFF comes from and the inputs and outputs of matter & energy involved… truly staggering.
I "missed" 2012, 2013 and much of 2014 caring for and desperately trying to keep my husband, my splendid friend, alive and then inside out when I could not. How I became "not-partnered" in the flesh. Paul and I started out on the path of simplicity in the late seventies but got side-tracked as we tried to survive and raise our daughter. Just trying to make enough to buy land/ house….college… and….got sucked in. We were making our way back… Paul found the Crash Course and Peak Prosperity… I continue on. Making some major shifts now, strong enough I think: retiring with small pension, selling house we renovated, paring down and moving west to be near my daughter: garden, yoga/mov't, run, meditation… Best to all. Thanks again.
