This is a response to warped4lyf-Lara, author of PsychedeLARA. I could have posted this as a comment in one of your entries, but I opted to post this here instead. I didn't want to look for one of your blog entries where I could fit this into, and it's a personal view anyway, plus this is additional blog entry :'p
I thought about your fondness for the old. Not people, but stuff. That also made me into thinking about my fondness for them. I also like some old stuff -- architecture, films, automobiles, planes, furniture... (I also have collections of stamps, cards, comics, even food packaging.) However, I realized that it wasn't just because of the quality of the pieces or my bit of fondness for nostalgia. It's in the integrity of how they were made. It's not actually these things per se, but the process that went into making them that draws me in, and more importantly the people with the skill and heart involved into making these pieces. Or masterpieces.
You know I never wished to be someone else (and I don't know how to answer that "if you could be... who would you want to be?" question) but I have wished, and still do, that I were somewhere or "some-time" else. I have always felt that I do not belong in this time, that it's not ready for me. (Or I'm not "ready" for it.) The things I have seen and the things I believe in are not things that many people I've met would accept or understand. Of course maybe I'm wrong, but meeting people like you makes me think that it's a vision that's not entirely hopeless.
What about a "resource based economy"? You could start on the pages of The Venus Project. See if it resonates with you.
Have a nice day =')
You're cool. You're weird. And that is good. =')
