Today is the first anniversary of this blog. I've been pondering longer than that I guess, but it's been a year since I put my first ponderings down in blog form. So, being a copycat, I thought I would commemorate the occasion in the same fashion as Crunchy Chicken, and have a celebratory book draw! And, I am such a copycat that I am going to hold the draw for the same exact book that I won from her: David Wann's Simple Prosperity.
I am almost finished reading this book and I will be done reading it by midnight MDT Monday, April 28th, 2008 which is when I'll close entry for the draw. I will make the draw on April 29th, and announce the winner on April 30th.
I recommend this book highly. It is a comprehensive and encouraging manifesto for how we as individuals and society can move towards a joyously moderate lifestyle that is based not on things, but on right relationship with ourselves, each other and the planet. I'd love to keep this book, but another copy will come my way somehow, one day. It's the kind of book that needs to be sent 'out there,' so that's what I'm doing! Plus, it's good to give something away that you really want to keep - it makes for a good lesson in healthy non-attachment to things.
So come one and all! Just leave me a comment and I will add your name into my super-duper random drawing contraption (sort of like my solar dryer roasting pan contraption, but with people's names in it instead of mango pieces!).
