There’s this idea in minimalism…

January 14, 2011

…it’s unspoken, an implied promise.  It says that if you just purge enough of your stuff, you’ll clear a sufficiency of space.  That way, when a rope ladder descends from the sky and prophecies heaven and new realms beyond the mundane, you’ll have room to leap up and grab on, unimpeded by obstacles, to experience the new, the vast, the wonderful and the fascinating.

A rope ladder swings down from heaven.

This is a false promise.  The TRUTH about minimalism is that clearing a sufficiency of room leaves you with more time to spy on your neighbors.

The brunette and her trusty frisson SPY. Oh how they spy.
