Looking back, it was late February last year that I wrote my second and last post about following the exercises in Live Like a Stoic. That’s because shortly after that the process fell flat.
I can’t recall the details precisely, but I know I couldn’t find the energy to maintain the habit. I say in that post that I was not going to be doing the exercises every day. Clearly I didn’t even manage a more relaxed regimen. I mention this because I want to have another go. And also I’ve been thinking a lot lately about ritual and my relationship to it.
As an aside, knowing that this topic will require multiple posts, it occurs to me that I could insert forward/back links into each related post so that a reader could directly follow the thread. Not thought of this before.
