I think many of us wouldn’t admit that our lives are mostly about “having and getting,” but that’s what it’s sadly become. We’re bombarded with commercials and movies and billboards telling us we need more stuff to be somebody.
I agree. I toured some homes for Flower Week today – unfortunately, there wasn’t much gardeny about it, either because the warm weather came too soon or because it was never about flower gardens and I just misunderstood. Anyway, it was house tours. It was interesting, sort of, but what I got out of it most is that I like my second-hand and walmart furniture, lived-in house. (And when I say second-hand, I mean 3rd and 4th hand used, not antique.) And I am more committed than ever to reducing the stuff in my house. Some of the collections I saw were pretty, but it was just so much clutter. Neatly displayed and interestingly arranged clutter.
