Subject: [Puptcrit] Gift/Art


So, I'm working my fingers to the bone making some puppets, jewelry, scarves etc. (mostly felted) to sell this weekend, hoping I'll at least take in enough dough to cover my table fee.
I need a break and opened the puppetcrit discussion email.  Wow! There is so much to digest!  I'm totally reinvigorated, not by a new world view per se, but by the visions and possibilities.  
So, thanks! 
Arthur Poore, can I quote you?

Just one thought...a gift economy (or really, a sustainable economy, which we do not have) might require that we have more sense about what we need.  Most of what we have, most of what we work for, we only "need" because that's the game we decided to play.  Our grandparents didn't need it, nor other humans all the back to Adam.  We didn't need this 10 years ago.  We didn't need that just 5.

Favorite economical writing:  Buddhist Economics by Schumacher http://www.smallisbeautiful.org/buddhist_economics/english.html  an essay from Small is Beautiful.
