I've just read a post by Milkmoon about moving home..
Since 1998 we've moved five times to progressively smaller homes....each time we've had to reduce what we have.
Now I'm leaving home and going to share a one bedroom, one living room cottage......
HOW do I reduce what I have still more....HOW do I pare down my belongings, my book collection, my pot collection?
I already have garden plants to move, and a workshop to pare down to bare essentials- not easy after so many years.
Living here in New Zealand for a while has shown us that we need far less than we think, but reducing all the things that have memories attached will hurt.
