Two desires have come together. First, the desire, no the necessity, to get rid of stuff in this house where we have lived for 34 years. Second, a fascination with the idea of a project that I would do every day for a year. The upshot is that every day we (my husband and I) will let go of something that we don’t need or want. We know it won’t always be simple, but we also trust that in the long run our life will be simplified.
