My name is Armando Duran.

I constantly strive to live a meaningful life.  And this means trying with all my effort to be in the present moment.

This website captures some thoughts and insights as I go through my life journey as well as practicing some of the principles of being a minimalist.

My own experience with minimalism has been that I started to become more of myself as you want to be and less of the self that the world wants me to be.

Some of the posts written here may be part of a  book titled: A Personal Manifesto, which can also be understood as Armando’s Personal Manifesto.
