#9 Less Is More

Less Is More.

Clean. Bare. Stripped down. Lean. Sparse.

These words can describe a body or a life; a living space; a frame of mind or an attitude; a way of seeing or creating; a design. I breathe into what lies beyond these words, into the feeling of windswept or water-washed. Less-is-more is an excellent landscape for meditation. Less-is-more can become a striving.

Once long ago, a roommate uttered a truth I’ve carried all these years: “All decisions are made with too little information.”

Information is the exception to less-is-more.

You and I can fill the page with examples illustrating this wisdom.

    I enjoyed that! It made me think of a book I loved and will read again : “The Book of Silence” by Sara Maitland. She found the solitude and silence as “full and wonderful” rather than empty. I certainly do. It seemed to define “less is more” when it comes to people! Keep up your good work. Kay
