wood stove

I give you the first film in my new series, the journal of small work*. How can we live well within the limits of our living systems? These films are a response to overwhelming urgency. In the face of the daunting prospect of transforming how we live, let’s start where we are, with what we’ve got, and build from there.

This first journal* pairs the useful, comforting framework of continuous improvement with the principle of stacking functions, redesigning our systems to meet several needs at once.

Being December, the wood stove steps up to illustrate. How can these ideas help us adapt to rapid change while keeping our balance?

For more writing that informs the journal of small work* subscribe to the letters, get the postcards and come talk to me as I write most days socially.

You can support the small work* here. I hope you love the new series.
