MAN WHO AIMED LOW----HIT HIS TARGET---BEAUTIFULLY
HIS AIM: TO LIVE CHEAP---BUILD A SMALL NEST TO FOREVER FEATHER---GET A CAT TO LOVE----A FRIEND OR TWO TO CONNECT WITH---AND ENOUGH BEER TO STAY EVER BUZZED.
Meet Crow a man who has what he wants---built his tiny home---has appointed it with his favorite things---is improving it constantly. Take note of the slight bulge at the rear--will show you what it contains.
Interior shot worthy of some study---a masterwork of design--note the skylight for illumination (adjustable) --a host of electronic gadgets ---cubicles that contain a conglomeration of comforts. The cat has separate quarters up front in the cab---and an access door for visits.
Remember the rear bulge? It contains this amazing stove--made of two cans. Insulated area for safety--burns charcoal--one lump at a time--helps heat the place--safely vents out the top---ash removal door at the bottom.
His workspace is that of a busy man with many projects going. I think he is a genuine AUTOTELIC personality. (self motivator--)
That's the face of contentment. AAh --but the beer---this early---his breath--suggest he has a outsized fondness for it.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: I like this guy's adjustment to life---he is a kind of visionary---that made his vision real---he manages his resources with great care---has many projects brewing in his head---has located himself in a community of extremely low rent--($80-$100 a month)--with accepting friends. Micro living such as this--could solve many of the world's problems. Aiming low has its advantages.
