Notes from a Blue Bike is a message of living intentionally in a society that vies for our attention. Following author Tsh Oxenreider and her family's quest for simplicity, this book focuses on 5 key areas: Food, Work, Education, Travel, and Entertainment. What does it mean to "live intentionally" and how do we get there?
Oxenreider's main message is about choices. What choices will we make, moment by moment? Organics expensive? Make choices about where to spend your money. Work pressing your down? Make choices about HOW you will work. Travel seem impossible? Rearrange your priorities and your expectations. Entertainment options abound? Choose the ones that will propel you forward to your ultimate goals.
Although Oxenreider speaks from a parental perspective, these principles apply universally. Intentionally requires planning, thoughtfulness, and a focus on what we value. An easy read, deeply thought provoking, and rich in content, Notes from a Blue Bike is a must read for anyone looking to breath in a chaotic society.
