Last summer, I wrote this short blog post – $10 life – a highly touching story about a woman called Rose Simpson, downsizing her credit-fuelled suburban life.
Since then, Rose and her partner’s lives have been good. They still work in the video business, only they now do it part-time, and work on projects that interest them the rest of the time. “One, for example, is documenting the creation of a monument to fallen firefighters, which is scheduled for construction in 2012. More than 1,000 firefighters have died in the line of duty, so itâ€™s quite interesting to learn about their stories.” says Rose Simpson of Ottawa.
Another thing that has changed in Rose’s $10 life, is a blog she started. It’s called (surprise, surprise)… The $10 Life: How I lost everything and found myself. That’s right! And she self-describes it as “a combination of slice of life stories, political commentary & humor.”
Congrats to you Rose and keep up the good writing.
