We Live Simply manifesto

My boy JD Blundell has a cool blog called We Live Simply where he writes and curates a ton of wisdom on how to live simply in today's super-hyper-giga-world of over-comsumption and media saturation.

He has released a manifesto that I am going to try to live by.

I'm sorry if that last statement has resulted in you spitting out coffee all over your PC or Mac... but its true... this materialist and lover of beautifully designed things is looking at how he can simplify his life. Ideas like intentionality, creating stuff, taking digital sabbaths, being grateful and even getting and being organised do resonate with me... so I'm going to give it a go... or should I say I am giving it a go and have been doing so for a wee while now. We'll see where it takes me.

Another thing that caught my attention with what JD is doing is his "copyright"... and I quote:
"This manifesto is Uncopyrighted. Its author, Jonathan Blundell, has released all claims on copyright and has put all the content of this manifesto into the public domain.

No permission is needed to copy, distribute, or modify the content of this manifesto. Credit is appreciated but not required."
I like that!

Go here to download the manifesto... and come with me on this journey.

Thanks for the plug!

It's a journey brother -- we're all in it together!

Glad to count you as a dear friend for the remainder of my journey.
