a look around

via: 1 2

our home is ever changing. i’ve find myself in a season of letting things go. purging. simplifying. only holding onto items which are ‘beautiful and useful’ as a designer william morris put it. when held up to that light, many possessions fall short and become unnecessary weight we carry around from place to place. each time i drop off a load of donations i feel much lighter–relief. also, knowing we will someday lay down more permanent roots is a comfort. for now i feel like a pioneer dragging our life behind us as we move each year. hopefully we only bring along what will remain beautiful and useful to us in some way.

so, shalom.
