Just some of what's important to me

Consumption is such a small part of my life that there are many other things that are much more important to me. When I came to think about what they are, I found that they divided between those things I personally find important and those that I consider to be universally valuable, and there are many of both. I could have included friendship, family, home-cooked food, singing, growing vegetables, grasshoppers in the grass that’s kept long, living on a quiet street, and getting around on foot, among others, in the personal list; and equality in all its forms, a free(ish) press, the rights to political participation and peaceful protest, compassion, community, trees, and much else, in the universal list.
