One of the most refreshing articles in a long time, Charles. Pratchett has always been refreshingly honest, and it’s great to see you put it into such simple terms. Simple living is the best thing you can do. It’s liberating in the sense that you’re not driven by silly things. Accumulated wealth is silly in that it cultivates silly notions of what’s important instead of what is necessary. Figure necessary out and you’ve got it made. Thanks.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
