Fixing it.

Our economy is largely based on the consumption of stuff. Back when I first moved to Eureka Springs, I observed that even in my own town, with so many artists, people were buying and selling stuff and making very little for themselves. And it seems to be getting worse with each passing year.. is a website dedicated to giving folks the power to fix rather than dispose of the things we own that may be broken or not quite working right. When we fix something we own, we may extend its useful life, delaying the replacement cycle by up to 75% or more. If we've delayed the replacement/consuption cycle, we've reduced the damage we do to the planet. The other thing we discover as we fix things is our own power.

We live in a world where folks are depressed and anxious as things spin out of our control, so in the tagline of my blog, I suggest, make, fix and create. By making things and fixing things we discover our creative power. When we discover our creative power, many of the reasons we may have felt depressed or anxious fade.

This article from NPR may help steer us back on the right track.

Make, fix and create...
