I smile every single time I look at, or touch, a favourite object because it gives me such joy! I am amazed that there are some items that I derive such happiness from. Is this contrary to being a minimalist?
Last week I had a birthday. In some ways I acknowledged the day and in other ways I did not. It has taken me several years to turn my birthday into a concept I am comfortable to walk past. Less waste, less expectation and more quality time.
