  1. beware: the following comment may upset your equilibrium…
    oh, Dorothy Day. Let me tell you I am still recovering from reading Dorothy Day, especially with friends in the Catholic Worker in Brisbane, and after years of trying to live communally in a poor neighbourhood…she is strong medicine – absolutely inspiring – but not for the faint-hearted.
    She said (and lived) “Anything that I possess that I don’t actually need is stolen from somebody else”.
    (So she kind of owned…nothing. Now who is it that reminds me of?)
    chew on that for a while if you have a conscience about consumerism. My conscience can only take so much.
