  1. Amen. Do Less! This is still my mantra, and I’ve recently come across some encouraging and thought-provoking writing on the subject. May I recommend Enough, by John Naish; In praise of slowness, by Carl Honore; and in case you haven’t seen it, Tim Kreider’s excellent essay in the New Yorker, ‘The Busy Trap’ http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/30/the-busy-trap/

    And now I am going to go and dig up all my rose bushes and plant low-maintenance leucadendrons. Roses are way too much work, and require too many toxic chemicals.
