Subtraction

The real challenge of contemporary life is not to get more but rather less.

The emerging concern is to limit the invadence of things, of food, of noise.

For example: eating prefabricated cakes, the use of plastic cups, shopping during sales time or watching on TV meaningless programmes and over-loud advertisements.

The idea is to run this as a diet, taking note every day of the useless items avoided.

The day before yesterday I skipped a breakfast on an Iberia flight to Bruxelles (again?). It could also be possible to attribute points to each item (and that breakfast would have represent a very high score).
