Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Far out:

The above house was a plan from a 1972 issue of Family Circle. You can find the plan here. I first knew of this house from a book: Tiny Tiny Houses by Lester Walker. It wouldn't pass code today, I'm afraid, but I think it's cool to look at.

Very cool to look at. Something tells me by the time I have saved enough for a house, it will be even tinier (spelling?) than this. Cool post. Have a great weekend.

Back again. My uncle was an architect in late 60's early 70's and he built himself and his wife a perfect square house with a perfect square cut out of the center. Imagine a square doughnut. He planted a tree in the center of the "square doughnut" and it is still there today. They have added a support system underground to stabalize the tree. Also very cool.

That's neat. Kind of like the school I attended - a square building with a 'courtyard' in the center.
