Greetings from the hive!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
As I reflect on the the recent passing of Maxi Jazz, I’m reminded of the carefree days of my youth. Memories of the joy and simplicity of dancing to Faithless’s hits like Insomnia and God is a DJ. Those were simpler times, and this loss emphasized my commitment to living a more minimalistic life, focused on doing less but doing it better, as Marcus Aurelius advised.
Among other projects, I want to declutter my space and simplify my schedule so that I can focus on what’s truly important. I want to live with intention and purpose, striving to be my best self every day.
What about you? What are your current goals and how are you working to achieve them?
Let’s take this week by swarm!
🐝 The Bee’s Knees
Awesome accounts to follow. Randomly selected from my curated Twitter lists.
A biannual honey harvest takes place in the foothills of the Himalayas in central Nepal, demonstrating that various taboos and rituals associated with honey-hunting remain, including sexual abstinence and appeasement of the gods. Here, the honey harvest is preceded by offerings of fruit, flowers, and rice as well as prayer.
Only then will a honey-hunter commence his ancestral descent of the rugged cliff face to plunder the nests of one of the world’s largest species of honeybee, Apis laboriosa.
This bee fact is brought to you by The Beekeeper’s Bible: Bees, Honey, Recipes & Other Home Uses.
