Intrigued to observe that I often think about "non-materialism" in terms of consumption and physical stuff, but Lao Tzu focuses more on a deeper, more inner notion of senses and experience. Stuff and content is just a vehicle for that stimulation, but not the only way.

Is there a difference between "optimism" and "hope"?

▲ Why we won't fix climate change — the blame game

This picture is a representation of the world we live in, but only because we accept it.

Good morning, world. Thunder infiltrated my dreams and I reminisced about old colleagues. It was my birthday for some reason, and I happened upon photos of us from years before, different people but the same.

How was your night?
