In a way, I live a relatively stripped-down life: I don't commute to go to work, I wear thrift-store clothes for the most part, I have a secondhand car and a one-bedroom cottage.
I also have a plethora of technology: a laptop, an iPhone, and ... okay. That will do for now.
When I say I'm looking for a simpler, more pure life, what does that mean?
I want to meditate more. This is solely up to me. I want to travel more. Okay, that's not totally up to me, and I'm not sure thousand-dollar airline tickets constitute more simplicity and purity. Maybe I just want to see India.
I'm thinking of becoming a vegetarian. This probably won't happen, though. It's important to get protein, particularly after Lap-Band surgery, and although I do like meat substitutes, somehow the real thing feels more protein-y.
So what the hell am I doing to make life more simple? Maybe I'm just taking one step at a time.
