I don't know what it is about living a life of carefree poverty that attracts me so much. I guess it's the simplicity. I am also not so sure why I am so fond of dirt, and clutter. Perhaps that is the influence of both my Ulster-Scots Appalachian ancestors as well as my Czechoslovakian gypsy ancestors. Either way, I have this burning desire to go live in the woods somewhere. To build a shanty and decorate it with other people's discards. The only drawback is the potential lack of human contact. But, then again that might be the selling point.
