Dans le fond des forêts votre image me suit

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
- Henry David Thoreau

Giving up meat de-cluttering started running stopped buying things. I am stripping away the periphery so that all I have is the essence of my being. This task at hand alone is enough to keep me focused and running and running and running in those dark nights and among blossoming trees. The promise of spring and the tears of joy. For that alone I will strive. For life alone I will strive.

Nothing scares me more than indifference and mediocrity.

My tyres have punctured, running-wise, but I've been enjoying my yoga classes - my body is stronger and my mind is more focused. I'm aiming to be less discontent.

it's enormously energizing to strip away the excess in one's life. the resulting lightness of being is so worth the effort. i'm cleaning my apartment today and taking stock of more pieces to edit from my closet!
