It brings me such joy to have less stuff,
To have less storage and feel it’s enough.
To have time to go out, feel the wind in my face,
And come home and sit in my favorite place.
To not have to struggle when the maid is on leave,
‘Cos cleaning is much quicker than it used to be.
It brings me such joy because less often means more,
And minimalism appeals. It’s the way I want to go.
Most homes in India need to be dusted and mopped daily because dust levels are quite high. Pollution and problems with pigeon feeding within housing societies often make this a major effort. I wrote about this earlier in Kharghar is burning.
