“‘Pare down to the essence, but don‘t remove the poetry.‘ The poetry is the humanity.
If that extra bowl reminds you of your grandma and brings you joy every time you look at it, well then, don‘t remove the poetry. Minimalism is as much an art form as it is a practice. There are no prescriptions or perfect answers. And where it starts and stops in your life is a bit unpredictable. Let it be.”
