It’s a good practice to learn how to do without. Particularly things that become a habit. TV, Facebook, Youtubes, cell phones, coffee, etc. Periodically just do without them for a while. Cut that dependence so that you know that you can, so that you know you are not a slave to these non-essentials — you control them, they don’t control you.
Henry Barnard Philosophy, Stoicism 1 Minute
Published by Henry Barnard
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
