I have been lately attracted to the idea of living in a small, modular, possibly prefab dwelling, somewhere off the grid. I was feeling like this before I read the article in Rolling Stone that talked about "peak oil," and how soon it's coming, and how it's going to be basically a new middle ages. So now I'm pretty motivated.
I'm still teaching my classes for now--I guess people still need to know how to make rhetorical appeals--but pretty soon, I'm going to have to be able to grow my own vegetables and maybe keep a goat. Luckily, I had my first cheese-making experience recently.
Off the grid, baby. That's where I'm headed.
