So much reflection over the past week What could have been. What should have been. Regrets about the past and hope for the future. The happiest time in my life was when I didn’t have two nickles to rub together. I rented, had a used pickup truck, and got out and saw things. I didn’t need “stuff” to be happy and don’t remember watching TV. I don’t mind that technology is here to stay, I think there is benefit…I’ve learned so many things (bad and beautiful) through the internet. However, it seems as if life has become a quest to have more things…at least for me. I’m not saying technology is a bad thing, or that I intend to shun it in any way. I’ll still enjoy and share the high powered Post-Rock tracks that I find comforting. I do intend, however, to shed my dependence on things, to stop accumulating more stuff, to become closer to nature, and embrace the Tao. I’m fortunate that I was given the chance to re-embrace my past and realize what is/was important. My regret is that I let it get away in the first place.
Here are two tracks that illustrate how simple things can be and still be beautiful.
