I always thought that “Repair” should be in there somewhere. (E.g., repair your shoes instead of throwing them out.) It should at least get more emphasis than such abstract non-action concepts as “Rethink” and “Respect.”
Hey! I just got hooked up with your journey yesterday via a friend on facebook. Looks like you went though my street about a week ago and my hometown Lake City. I am on day April 23rd ( I don’t remember what day, I have it minimized) . I just had to let you know that I think this is totally cool. I love your take on things. I have a similar mind. I’ve shared this to a few similar thinking friends who I know would appreciate your journey! Got to get back to the journey man!! Enjoy your time in northern Minnesota!!
