Day 19. Tonight in my dance I got to thinking about simplicity and space. I love space. I move through space and feel free and empowered in my body, not worried about banging into anything. I feel a sense of relief in the simplicity of a space. In the homes I house-sit, I see rooms full of objects. Often there is no room to move and stretch out fully. There are big sofas, tables with trinkets on, tables in front of windows making them unopenable, side tables full to bursting with ornaments, coffee tables, stools with papers on, cluttered desks with no space, so many chairs…. Each day, I spend more time inside than out, so it’s important to have the right balance between practicality, aesthetics and expanse. Too many things feels constricting. I know people who can’t stop buying things. It’s suffocating them, making them ill. They’re being swallowed up by their own stuff. Scary! The more they have, the less they appreciate each object because it gets lost in a sea of other objects. I want to breathe into my space. Breathe in its purity. I want to honour it. Steve Jobs’ perfect room set up was a record player and a light. And lots of…Space. Amazing. I want to take this lesson forward for when I finally settle down. Less is more.
