I saw a show, last night, that reminded me why I would make a very poor cultural anthropologist. It was about the Zo’é people, also known as the Poturu, a tribe of about 160 in Brazil, near the headwaters of some Amazon River tributaries. They were unknown in the West until 1987.
I paid off all my credit card debt, today, and it feels good. My guitar, my first and second blown transmissions from my old car, business expenses, a bunch of stuff: gone. Of course, I’m not starting law school debt-free; I’ll have a car loan and enough student loans to float a small country for a day or two, but I’m still thrilled to have eliminated the most high-interest debt.
