Leave no trace, for a clear mind

Stowe Boyd is quoting Rafe Needleman on ‘anywhereism’:

Can we make places to work and live where we leave actually traces behind, even after we have left? Can we reject the premises and realities of Anywhereism?

I can go along with a lot of stuff in that post. But with the leaving-traces-behind thing I disagree, albeit from a different perspective: to be able to work with presence and focus, I think it is important to clean up your mess when you’re done.

So, to me it is not a question of ‘rootlessness’ as Boyd puts it, but more of being able to work with attention. Something to live by, also privately.
