Re: “Close Quarters: Inside Richmond's Tiny Houses

Dear Rachel Anne Warren, thank you for this article that is, to me, a superb example of the very best journalism, especially the choice of topic/subject and inclusion of well-informed contributors/interviewees. While every commentator has his/her own voice and the right to express their truth, I write to express my gratitude for your writing skills and sharing them with us on this "small" but timely and enormously relevant topic (and one of my favorite topics) -- the tiny house. Various critiques may be made of the up- and down-sides of the tiny house, but as it relates to ethics and humanity (dignity, pride, privacy, safety, etc.) especially those living in poverty (or suffering from addictions or neglect) and those affected by natural disasters (floods) and man-made evils and tragedies (such as the orphan and refugee populations resulting from war and even genocide) and other negative results of war (dehumanization because of maiming, torture and rape, etc.) that causes displaced populations to form (outcasts and those who cannot cope due to trauma at no fault of their own), the tiny house is a positive option that I support 100%. Every human deserves a safe place to live and dignity. These tiny houses can be moved and disassembled (to some degree) and can even be re-purposed or gifted (paid forward) when no longer needed by the original occupant. Bravo and well done. I'm a big fan of this type of architecture and its short and long-term benefits to humanity. Besides, I’m planning to live in one myself very soon because I just like the look of this house, living in a small space, and the very likely chance that such a “retreat” will offer me to re-humanize myself into the society again as I heal from past traumas and, perhaps, even thrive in this world. Our personal footprints are what we make of them (positive or negative) and can change over time – even be rolled to another piece of the earth. It is okay to help one another and care for one another regardless of the reason the person needs help – we do not even have to ask why.
