Making Space

The gift of living in tight quarters is the constant need to weed out junk to keep the space clear and bright. Still, I wonder what else I could get rid of. Do I really wear everything in my wardrobe? I know that I don’t need all the books that I have. What would happen if I bid farewell to all that I don’t use? I would probably only have a few plates, eating utensils, a glass and frying pan in my kitchen. The idea of a Spartan lifestyle seems appealing because of all the space that it frees up for something more, something joyfully unexpected to come in. Plus, I would do myself a great service by having a “clean and well-lighted place” which soothes the eyes and the soul.
