Isn't it interesting how timeless and true good writing proves itself, even in our modern age, and even though it was originally intended for a different literary context? It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of … Continue reading The best of times
The single highest purpose in life. The more one lives, the more they ask themselves about the meaning of life. What's the point of it all? Why are we here? Who made us? We get into all these complicated discussions about origins and God and the afterlife, discussions that amount to just about zero. All … Continue reading Work

How do we and how should we regard and care for our bodies? We each only get one body during our lifetimes. How do we want to spend … Continue reading The care of our bodies
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIqb8rWJfGA What's the healthier, saner way to view that which have or enjoy? Should you regard it as a possession or should you see yourself as a steward of it? What's the better long-term approach to these matters? Join me for a (non-religious) discussion of the subject in this video. I'll talk about various topics … Continue reading Stewardship or possession?
I've owned these monk-strap shoes for over 10 years. I photographed them this morning for the purposes of this post. These are one of the pairs of shoes I use around the house for all kinds of work: home office, going to the cellar to fetch firewood, going into the dusty attic to put or … Continue reading The story of a pair of shoes

In this video from The Elegant Gentleman series, I talk about one's possessions and the attitude we should have toward them. In a nutshell: it's not about quantity, it's about quality. And it doesn't matter if you're wealthy or on a limited income. You should always opt for quality or you'll pay more and feel … Continue reading The right attitude toward possessions
I'd like to present a new project of mine, something that I've been thinking about and planning for a while. It's called "The Elegant Gentleman", and it's going to be a journey on which I'll hope you'll join me, where we will explore clothes, manners and the finer things in life, in the search for … Continue reading Introducing “The Elegant Gentleman”
Ligia and I attended a talk given by Dr. Brian Clement of the Hippocrates Health Institute -- the foremost center of natural and complementary health care in the world. The event took place at the Caldwell Theatre in Boca Raton, FL, on March 22, 2010, and the talk was on aging, and what we can do to … Continue reading Dr. Brian Clement on Stopping the Aging Process

Among other things, they redirect energy that … Continue reading Gotta give them something to do
