…there are all different kinds of freedom, and the kind that is most precious you will not hear much talk about much in the great outside world of wanting and achieving…. The really important kind of freedom involves attention and awareness and discipline, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways every day.

–David Foster Wallace

I am two weeks a vegetarian!!  Finally.  It has taken me 125 days to get to this point.  Changing habits is grueling work.  It’s making deliberate decisions many times a day.  It is doing without something you really, really want at times. I think David Foster Wallace’s words sum the process up nicely, “The whole trick is keeping the truth up front in daily consciousness…”
