Hi, all! I’m Paul from western NY, USA (just south of Buffalo) and I joined recently to learn more about frugal, simple living. The world in increasingly complicated and I fear we are becoming ever more detached from our roots and old ways.
I am married, I garden (mostly weeds but they’re really supposed to be vegetables and herbs ) and love cats, reading and writing. Star Trek and Middle Earth rule.
My interests that I think are relevant to this community include Distributism (an economic philosophy rooted in the writings of Pope Leo XIII, G. K. Chesterton, Hillaire Belloc and E.F. Schumacher, amongst others. “Economics in service to the people,” ‘cause in Capitalism and Marxism it’s the other way around), Linux and open source software and generally looking for alternatives to the mainstream.
That’s it for now. I hope to learn more about this place and all of you!
