I had three pieces of limestone on my desk, but I was terrified to find that they required to be dusted daily . . . and threw them out the window in disgust. — Henry David Thoreau, Walden
That book made a powerful impression on me. After reading it, I decided that I, like Thoreau, would travel light along the road of life, and stop dragging so much useless junk around with me.
Unfortunately, that was almost 20 years ago and I still haven’t been able to carry it off.
Not yet, anyway.
But I still think the concept is valid . . .
