Never Miss a New Post.
Laurence and Judy believe in bikes, poetry, good food, community, makerliness, the healing power of love and the basic goodness of all that is, including the bipedal hominids that don't live like us.
OF THE MONTH
Elizabeth Marshall Thomas's The Harmless People, 1958, is the story of the Gikwe Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert, with whom she and her family lived for months at a time. Thomas creates a moving anthropological study of the way human hunter-gatherer society worked for millions of years; and she also records its clash with modernity, in the 1989 epilogue. The Bushman ethos is one of non-violence and sharing, easy laughter and acceptance of what is.
