What Will We Become?

Friday, April 01, 2005

When we are fulltimers, what do we call ourselves...besides "fulltimers"?
I notice that Tioga and George refer to themselves as vagabonds.

Vagabond: n. 1) A person without a permanent home who moves from place to place. 2) A vagrant; a tramp. 3) A wanderer; a rover.

How about "gypsy"..."One inclined to a nomadic, unconventional way of life." Unconventional sounds good. We haven't gotten TV reception in this house since the mid 90's. That's pretty unconventional, I think. On the road, we will once again have TV reception because we will have a satellite....a necessity for the computer.

I think the word "nomad" suits us best: 1) A member of a group of people who have no fixed home and move according to the seasons from place to place in search of food, water, and grazing land. 2) A person with no fixed residence who roams about; a wanderer.

The word "nomad" has a simple earthy feeling to it. I don't plan on grazing, though. Being nomadic is a daily reminder of how little we really need in this world. Life is not about grasping for more stuff. Tread lightly. Let Earth begin to heal.

You've not missed anything by not having a tv reception. There is hardly anything to watch,except sometimes some nature and good discussion programs on PBS

Yes...I traveled to Cleveland recently and watched some TV to see what wasn't on. I agree about the nature shows and PBS.
