As we live on this earth we have basic needs,
Food, warmth and shelter.
This is a place to once again post images.
Of beautiful ways of doing this.
Drawing from my own personal experiences,
much like a garden, full of biodiversity,
The more different ways I have of heating and cooling,
the better my chance I can harvest in different types of weather that year.
Right now I'm in Alaska USA, and it is winter,
and the winds are cold and strong.
I have wind generators, and my power storage is full,
so to use this extra power, I have electric heaters running,
so the harder the bitter winds of winter blow, the warmer my dwelling becomes.
This is just one example of keeping warm turned into an art.
But to finish doing so, I need to redesign (a work in progress),
the bodies of my wind generators so they too, become ART.
Something that someone looking at them, would see as beauty,
not as a distraction from the beauty of nature (life on earth)
but an accent to it. to bring beauty to it, not take away from it.
That looking upon the wind generators and solar panels and other means,
is turned into something of beauty,
Something that would look nice, in Paradise.
Not just turning keeping warm into an art, but to do so artistically.
So it reflects peace on earth, rather than distracts from it.
A warm fire could be seen as something of beauty and peace,
And pictures of those are welcome also,
However, we seem to be doing a lot of burning on this earth,
since we learned about fire, we seemed to have gotten a little carried away with it,
like a child given a power tool.
I try to use electricity, even though I have a wood stove in Alaska and an abundant local supply,
I seek to learn to do things better an not burn up the world I live in, to stay warm.
If I am descendant of cave man,
I think my ancestors could look upon me and smile,
with my turning the bitter winter winds, into heat for my home,
without burning anything, without work, the winds do this for me,
as I use what this earth freely gives, wisely,
rather than force from the earth more than it freely gives,
and burn up what belongs to the next generations, more than to this one,
that has already used up far more than its share.
I am among those who have done so,
and need to stop, so I can live in peace,
for existing on this earth.
Please post ideas and pictures of ways we can keep warm or cool,
that do not destroy this paradise, but accent it, using what is freely given.
The more beautiful they are, the more others will want to do the same from these examples.
Like a smile, its beauty, and it is contagious!
Sorry these are not pretty (yet) I'm living on around $200 USD a month income so the heater came out of a dumpster and I'm putting function before fashion, until I can put more of myself into re-creating Paradise.
It is a work, in progress.
