Thank you, this resonated with me in a few ways. The distinctions that Xygalatas makes between habits and rituals is really interesting for the thinking I'm doing around categories of practice within an ecology of practices.

The ideas of rebirth and regeneration are helpful too. Losing my job a few months ago and struggling to find another one is forcing me to consider a different path entirely, discarding the familiar and trying something new.

Deleting those articles was a bold move. Did you have backups or are they lost to the ether?
