Paring down

Today the movers came and removed an old trailer from the orchard. Everyone is much happier. We're happy because we can reclaim the space. The movers are happy (probably) to have a job. The new owner is happy because he's going to be able to use it in his business. It's all good. It got me thinking about how much time we had spent wanting to get rid of it. I believe that clutter, whether mental or physical, simply takes away from elegance. I believe that one of my best habits is dropping stuff off at the Goodwill about once a month. I believe that paring your stuff down to what you really need and love, is always more elegant.
