Freelance writer Kelly Barth and her partner and fellow Kawsmonaut, landscape painter Lisa Grossman, and their two cats live happily on little money in a very small house in Lawrence, Kansas. The two have been a part of the Kawsmos community since 2005â€”just in time for a year of studying the sun and the resultant â€œLighten Upâ€ energy-reduction project. All residents of Douglas County, Kansas, the Kawsmonauts meet monthly in each otherâ€™s homes for potlucks and interdisciplinary study and celebration of various aspects of their home bioregion, planet, galaxy, and universe.
