A Good Story Of Living With Less
Seems like every time I click on the NYT these days, I’m inspired or at least reassured that momentum is shifting, people are waking up and choosing a path with less greed, ego and blind consumption involved.

The full article is worthwhile, a recommended read with love from CoLab.
