I never really wanted to carry this amount of stuff all at once back in the 80′s/90′s but I sure do remember having all these things around me. Having a smart phone replaces all this stuff, but it makes me wonder if we use our phones as tools to their greatest potential. Or, since it’s so small, we forget that we have these capabilities.
I find it pretty easy to relate to many of the cartoons from Cat vs. Human.
This might not make sense to those unfamiliar with The Big Bang Theory.
I was poking around a site I recently discovered called New Escapologist and happened upon this blog post which brought to my attention a BBC documentary called American Nomads. A British journalist -Richard Grant- interviews several types of nomads here in the U.S. Among them are retirees in RVs, teens hopping trains, hitchhikers and rodeo cowboys. It’s quite the interesting 90 minutes and I recommend that you take some time to watch and enjoy it.
I’m pleased to have been a guest on Robert Wall’s Untitled Minimalism podcast. Robert and I spent time talking about a number of things but I like how he summed up our conversation:
For most, collections are invitations to clutter. Today we’re talking with Craig about his personal journey toward a minimalist life, and his experience with collecting things – both before and after his transition to minimalism.
I invite you to listen to episode #6 of the Untitled Minimalism Podcast.
