    The simple life may be good, but it's neither easy nor simple.  We started on the trail in the seventies, about the time Mother Earth News and the Whole Earth Catalog came along.  It has been a long quest, and far from finished, but here's my bit of "wisdom--"

    Life is about skills.  Learn how to do things yourself.  Understand what you really need, and consider how to get there without incurring debt.  It isn't like flipping a switch, more like getting a religion.  

    School is good.  Learning is better.  Practice is better still.  Goals are probably best of all.

    How many wrongs does it take to make a right?
