Daniel Suelo Living Without Money


    People are searching for simplicity in their life and it seems that penniless Daniel Suelo may have found that perfect mix of survival without monetary gain and the trappings money brings us. You could say he is the Henry David Thoreau of today’s world. Can you believe this, he also has a blog. This modern-day caveman lives an hour by foot from the desert town of Moab in Utah and goes to the library to blog his daily thoughts. He claims that he no longer uses money since the year 2000. While he is not in your local dumpster getting his next meal from over portioned discards from restaurants he gathers his thoughts and types to his heart’s desire to share with all us people with money about the evils of money. How could we go wrong when etched on some currency are the words, In God We Trust. Could we be wrong?  Are there enough caves for us to join this solo pilgrimage of Daniel Suelo? This quite an oxymoron, the poorest guy on the planet using Google’s platform to blog his thoughts on the richest company in the globe.  A penny for your thought. I hope Yogi doesn’t return to his cave. You know money talks and you know what walks. Yes, Virginia desert hobos do blog.
