I do believe in living in the moment, as in being attentive, awake, grateful for what is here, today. The moment, after all, is the only place we can live.
-- Building a Better Nest: Living Lightly at Home and in the World by Evelyn Searle Hess, author of To the Woods.
After living for 15 years in a tent and trailer in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range, Hess and her husband built a real house on their 20 acres. But they wanted their "better nest" to be off-grid, sustainable, and reflect the personal and community values they had developed during their years of camping life.
Building a Better Nest is available from Powell's, on kindle from Amazon, at OSU Press, or ask your local bookseller to order it!
