I share a lot here about minimizing the stuff – but not a whole lot about what happens when we maximize life. Truth be told, this is the shinier side of the minimizing coin.
As clutter leaves the house, we are left with less and less that must be cleaned or organized. What is to be done with the extra time?
We take things a little more slowly than we used to do.
We like to walk to our favorite park. We watch the ducks, red-winged blackbirds, and the fishermen. I make flower bracelets for Rie’s tiny wrist. Maile plops down in the grass and soaks up the sunshine. We take time to chat with the other parents at the playground.
There’s no rush – and we have nowhere else to be more important than this time and place.
As always, thanks for reading!
