On Obsession and Frugality


I’m afraid frugal isn’t a pretty word. It conjures up images of people reusing garbage can liners, unplugging every appliance before they go to bed (I’ve started doing this, sparing the refrigerator). In other words, when we focus exclusively on one aspect of our lives things can get a little, err, ritualistic. Which is okay, in measure.

Here’s a piece by Scott McCloud, totally unrelated to frugality, but brilliantly illustrating (pun intended) some of the things that fuel unbridled obsession. I hope you’ll take the time to read it. It’s that good.
