La Promesa…

Two Women Talking under a Tree

TwoWomenTalkingunder a Tree

La Promesa

Desnudas estamos
Mentes desenredando
viajando hacia arriba a lo largo del imponente árbol alto,
mas arriba, sobre nosotras.

Sus ramas se extienden consejos que tocan la interminable extensión del espacio
lleno de estrellas brillantes, girando en movimientos incesantes de vitalidad.

Bailando y buceamos, esquivar y tejido
en el cosmos infinito
nuestros pies firmemente plantados
aquí, ahora
en nuestra Madre Tierra.

La luna se asoma detrás del grueso tronco y
tomo tu mano.

El calor al instante … chispas, hormigueo a lo largo de mi brazo
a pulso en un corazón latiendo con gratitud
estar aquí

Durante el tiempo que nos sirve
sirve la vida
sirve amor

We Are…

“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

“Levanto la vista hacia el cielo de la noche, y yo sé que sí, somos parte de este Universo, estamos en este universo, pero quizás más importante que estos dos hechos es que el universo está en nosotros. Cuando reflexiono sobre ese hecho, miro hacia arriba-mucha gente se siente pequeño, porque son pequeños y el Universo es grande, pero yo me siento grande, porque mis átomos vinieron de esas estrellas. “- Neil deGrasse Tyson



In my wanderings researching everything I can lay sight on concerning this incredible movement toward a more rational, simpler, environmentally sound and financially liberating life style I recently discovered Gabriella and Andrew Morrison the creators of tinyHouseBuild.com. What a joy! Everything you could possible wish to find on one web site is here to be found along with many links.

Gabriella’s blog has a wealth of not only vital information about how to, it also includes anecdotes of their adventures along this path. After all, what we seek is not only to save money, which is a definite bonus by living large in smaller spaces but, it is also about community. They share the process and in their FAQ section they address all questions and are answered in detail. They have invested soul felt time and energy to create a welcoming home for all to share in their collective knowledge.

Andrew makes available, at a most reasonable cost, all of the plans, material lists, schematics, blueprints and DVD’s for the grand tiny house they now live in. (I in no way benefit financially from this recommendation. I am merely impassioned by this movement to someday be able to fully incorporate) Please do yourself a favor and check them out. Following, the hOMe tour video. You will be rewarded for time well spent. And checkout their FB page while your out and about.



Living Large…

Every time I open my laptop and search under the heading of ‘Tiny Houses’ I am each and every time amazed at the growth of this evolutionary movement. The ‘Tiny House’ expansion within the US may have started from a basic need for shelter in the dwindling, affordable housing market. However, this is not the case in all instances anymore. Not here or elsewhere. All around the globe millions of others were already aware by virtue of necessity or of the need to downsize. They were already aware of the fact that having a lot of things does not afford personal nor environmental well-being. In fact we are somewhat lagging along these lines and in far too many instances contributing to just the opposite.  Continue Reading »
