My self-imposed mission is to share old writings and reflect on how they are still relevant today. I plan to focus on the Stoics and hope to appeal to the layperson, as that is what I consider myself, and use plain language. We are all overburdened with information, likely sleep-deprived, overextended and double- or triple-booked mentally. For me, Stoicism is an antidote to the prevailing toxins of busyness and materialism and the general sense of excess–hence the title of this blog.
I have a lot to read and a lot to learn. I hope that having a blog will keep me accountable, spurring me to continue studying and overcome distractions.
Thanks for reading!
