So…Hi! I’m Marti! I’m a somewhat middle-aged atheist, minimalist, eco-hippie/gadget junkie mom of two, married to a lapsed Catholic anime junkie. When I’m not busy indoctrinating my poor innocent children in the finer points of overthrowing religion and helping our Illuminati overlords come to power, I enjoy writing speculative fiction, designing furniture, sculpting, painting, jewelry making, practicing woodland survival skills, and baking cookies and shit. I also have an unnatural fondness for fuzzy socks and British folk bands.
The eco- part resonates with my earlier readings of Alfo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac, Euell Gibbons, and visiting eco-hippies in New Mexico such as Michael Moore (Southwest School of Botanical Medicine).
Hi @martiharris! You have some cool sounding activities. I don’t design furniture, but I do frequent the local “ReBuilding Center” aka used house parts semi-junkyard, for stuff to refinish, restore, repurpose, rebuild etc. A significant part of our house is at least partly from there. No cookies, but I all of our bread these days is home made sourdough. Do some similar stuff.
Glad you are indoctdinating your young with reason. Somebody’s gotta do it 😈
