Why More is Less
I had to think hard the first time I heard that one. Really? How can more of something be less of it?
As the day passed I pondered it. I was tidying up and looking around at all the “stuff,” and immediately I thought, “That’s it!” There so much crap around here I have more stuff to pick up and less time for the stuff I really want to do. More is less…
I looked at our tiny gallery-sized kitchen with its sink piled high of dishes. Hmm, how can I minimize the dishes? I set about taking all the extra silverware and dishes out, save for 3 place settings. Did it work? No, my youngest was incorrigible. Not only a non-conformist, but a defiant one as well.
I didn’t stop there. I took a very close look at the snacks he was bringing into the house. Yikes, they had anywhere from 10-25 ingredients, with words so long, I had trouble pronouncing them.
What happened to the snacks of my youth? You know, the ones with just the tasty fat, salt and sugar?
