Minimalism in Action


I am having a hard time. My phone started having problems, my check engine light came on, and then my laptop died. I am doing this for the first time on my new tablet.

I thought about getting a new laptop, but I cannot justify it. I don’t need Word, PowerPoint, or Excel right now. Getting a new laptop with all the bells and whistles would feel like techno hoarding. Just because I will need something eventually is not sufficient to invest hundreds of dollars on it now, Simplicity demands using what I need and no more.

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
