I like things. I’m not a crazy own-nothing zealot (although I’ve wondered what it would be like to own only what would fit in a suitcase or a backpack).

But, the fact is I like things — I like things a lot. I just prefer to select things carefully, and to immediately sell, donate or gift things that no longer fit my life, work in my personal space, or bring me joy.

I am not a minimalist as much as a simplicity nut. When I find really cool things, that are worth the space they take, the care they require, and the money they cost, I often get them.

When I find really cool items like that, I’ll tell you about them here.
