I seem to be moving through this cycle where I simply want to strip away the things that do not matter – to cut life down to that which is essential and necessary. To remove from the peripheries of daily life all the extraneous things that achieve no purpose or hold no meaning. I want to find the bare minimalist bones of life. That last sentence immediately brought to mind of the classic book “Zen Flesh, Zen Bones”. I want to find the Zen bones of life so I can feast on the Zen flesh.
