As far as household chores go, I adore hanging clean laundry out to dry. I find it extremely satisfying, and judging by all of the beautiful laundry line photos I see out there in blogland, I'm not the only one.
Sometimes I think about the first humans who might have hung their furs over a bare branch to dry after a soaking rain. I try to fathom how very many generations of women and children have hung their families' clothing since then. Sometimes I have little helpers to distract me from my wandering thoughts.
Everything looks so fresh and lovely flapping in the breeze, whether it's a holey t-shirt or a handmade sundress.
This is solar and wind energy at their most basic, straight from the source.
