Voluntary Simplicity

2005-04-27 10:00 - General

I just found this website called Voluntary Simplicity. The basic idea is that our lives, in general, have gotten far too busy and complicated to possibly enjoy them these days. Most of the ideas seem quite sound. They get a bit extreme towards the end, but I like the general concept.

I personally live in a smaller apartment than I could afford, earning less money than I could get if I really applied myself. But why do it? Why run the rat race? Scrambling for more money to buy more things wastes your whole life, it ruins what little is left over. A little simplicity is a good thing.

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
