Musings of art, truths and subsistence living
Porcupine Lounge was built to combine my art with discussions on environmental living (including food, gardening etc), self sufficiency and sustainability along with random accounts of inspiring information. As well as having a passion for art and nature, I have a keen interest in applied ethics and here I share my thoughts on the ethics of our ambiguity. As topics vary; some are light and amusing, some visual, some educational. Some may be a little confronting and difficult to deal with.
As humans, when we’re confronted with something that suggests that our current practices are not the best ones, it’s uncomfortable. We can either consider that our choices may not have been the best ones, which is extremely disturbing, or we can reject that premise without truly considering it, so that we don’t have to feel bad about our actions. That’s the more comfortable approach. Apparently the key to modern life is strategic ignorance.
Anyway, hopefully you’ll want to read on. Who knows, maybe you’ll be able to walk away from here with a new recipe, a gardening tip or a new canvas art piece. Maybe you will read something that will make you reshuffle your values to accommodate the new facts. Whatever it is, I hope that I am able to share something with you.
This is my way, my sincere and steady devotion to the pursuit of a personal truth. For all the quirks and challenges of that pursuit, it is indeed the only path we truly have, and some discover that too late. After all, we are not human beings having a spiritual experience on this planet, we are spiritual beings having a human experience on this planet.
