QotD: Voluntary Simplicity

I have enough money in the bank now to buy enough beans and rice for twenty-five years. To the end (sometimes longed for). Why not kidnap Suzy and sneak off to the life of a semi-hermit? A tempting, constantly tempting idea. ......Peace. Simplicity. Order, ceremony and ritual. Voluntary poverty. An end to clutter and this vulgar, stifling, crushing burden of things.
--Edward Abbey

I love this quote. I'm tempted. Where are you Suzy?

Yes, I crave the same thing. Peace, simplicity, order, ceremony, ritual....... all lacking in this hectic goal-oriented money spending fracas that I currently participate in.
