I have been living an ascetic life since I have been in Okinawa. I have a beautiful apartment but no stuff. I have 1 knife 1 fork, 1 spoon, 1 cup,1 plate, 1 collapsible table, 1 collapsible chair,1 futon,3 tatami mats,2 pillows, 1 duvet, 2 trousers,2 shirts and sundries. Oh, 1 huge exercise machine, which I am actually using.
St Simeon Stylites lived on top of a pole for 37 years
I do however have a fantastic terrace with a beautiful view over the sea. I have planted some flowers and I sit writing this,
looking over the flowers to the view. Sunday morning. On Tuesday my furniture arrives and my apartment will be cluttered but comfortable.
