The writer of Adventures in Voluntary Simplicity decides it’s time to set a new course for his life. Excerpt:

I have been living in the dark for over six years now and enough is enough. Sure, you can have tons of fun in the dark.

I want to get up early and read the paper with my coffee or go for a long run. I want to develop long-lasting relationships instead of brief flirtations. But here’s the thing: I mean all of this in a deeper existential way that I’m not quite sure I can articulate.
