Path to Freedom

From tomorrow's paper, a story about the Path to Freedom family: "O, Pioneers in Pasadena," by Joe Robinson.
"We believe that a step backward is progress," says Dervaes, a former beekeeper, teacher and constant gardener trapped in the wrong century. "Some people might feel we're regressing, but I feel we're progressing to a better life. We've lost that independence and the things that make us truly happy. The people that got us here must have done something right. We want to repeat that for the next generation."
And a short guide to beginning a micro-farm: "Novice's guide to an urban homestead."

Seeing things in a different way

Shhh...I'm not really here. But I couldn't resist linking to this article in the LA Times (via PTF): "She's L.A.'s Pedal Pusher," about a young woman, Monica Howe, who is promoting bicycle riding as "everyday transportation" in Los Angeles.
To ride a bike in L.A. is to examine the accepted ways of doing things [...] It's a way of stepping out and seeing things in a different way.
