Be Where Now?

Dwelling in Possibilities, an article by Mark Edmundson, is one of the best articles I have read in some time. His myriad thoughts on the frenetic lifestyle most now embrace are eerily similar to my own (though I will admit I am likely to err even more than he on the side of Wordsworth's Old Cumberland Beggar).

Simply a great read. Perhaps because I'm in the right frame of mind—thinking a lot about pace of life (and minimalism) today, perhaps because his perspective is frustratingly refreshing, not because it is new, but because it is so seldom heard.

Take a few minutes and read it. Slowly.

(I cannot help the thought that Edmundson's perspective is largely lost on, well, almost everyone. That said, the timestamp of this post—something I normally tweak slightly but did not have to today—made me laugh.)
