The cashless man


“The morning I finally decided to give up using cash, the whole world changed.”.

“While feeding the stove with broken-up old vegetable boxes, I would watch the moon rise in winter and the sun set in summer for the time it took to prepare my evening’s repast.
Birds in the trees around my kitchen became my new iPod, and observing wildlife taught me much more about nature than any documentary I’d seen on the television.”.
(Mark Boyle)

From The Guardian: My year of living without money, by Mark Boyle.

“In folklore the tanuki is a bit like the plump, comical brother of the fox, equally prone to mischief and shape-changing and the deception of humans.

It seems to have a hedonistic bent, constantly on the prowl for saké, food, and women, and is known to disguise worthless leaves as money to obtain those things.
It also seems quite good at turning itself into inanimate objects.”.


The Tanuki.
From The Obakemono Project, “a Gaijin’s Guide to the Fantastic Folk Monsters of Japan.”.

El Caganer


“In Catalonia, as well as in the rest of Spain and in most of Italy and Southern France, the traditional Christmas decoration is a large model of the city of Bethlehem.
The Catalans have added an extra character known as the Caganer, often tucked away where he is not easily noticed.
“Caganer” translates from Catalan to English as “pooper”, and that is exactly what this little statue is doing: taking a poo.”.
(from Wikipedia)
