Why do I maintain this site and blog? I believe everyone has something meaningful to say and share. Because gradients of difference our how we learn from each other. What you don’t know someone else might. So, I share my thoughts on my experiences, experiments, travel, and often ideas from the philosophy of minimalism. The one thing I wish I had learned more than anything else when I was younger. Why do I love minimalism?

On Cloudflow 2020 Review

The best pair of walking shoes I ever bought. That is simple summation of the latest version of the On brand’s Cloudflow for 2020. I ventured outside of my usual Nike purchases to bring some variety into my reviews and rotation. I have long enjoyed the On brand for some of the technologies they are introducing and the freshness in their designs. But after multiple rounds with the now benchmark Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo, it is hard to call this a great running shoe. Whether a light volume or heavy mileage runner, I just can’t see this shoe being worth the price for running.

Tribalism and Purpose

Tribalism and Purpose

15 Aug , 2020   Culture,Lifestyle,Minimalism

In the larger sense, I don’t believe the world or at least individual nations have worked collectively to achieve a much larger purpose since the space race. Quarantine orders, though absolutely necessary, have only further isolated and deepened distrust between us. Belonging to a larger collective with a bigger vision is what we could use now. Unfortunately, our leaders and the news media talking heads fail to push an agenda that works to unite. This effort most likely has to start at the individual level. If there is one question we could all ask ourselves that could roll neatly into a greater mission is, “is what I am working at, in a purely objective and secular sense, leaving humanity and earth better than I found it?”
