Modern Day Thoreau

I find the whole concept of The Field Lab so darn dreamy.
I am especially charmed by Benita. Read the article, and you'll see. 
Believe me, I know there's a whole lot more to living
in a solar-powered shack in the desert
than star gazing and cattle counting.
This is h-a-r-d living.
It's no picnic among the tumble weeds and sage.
But I imagine the rewards of eating the bread you baked,
drinking the beer your brewed,
and letting your hair catch the water from the shower you take,
-all heated and created from the rays of the sun-
must feel extraordinary.
Very cool.
