Room to Breathe

A favorite cousin came to visit recently, and we discovered we are on the same housekeeping page: the closer we live to the pattern we experienced as students, the happier we are. I have done this by downsizing in place; she moved into an apartment and rented out her house. Each of us has been renewed by setting aside the bulk and tonnage of domestic life.

When I moved into my first house, all six hundred square feet of it, a wise older friend reminded me to leave room for people. Now I would add to leave room for life.
