When we step back + take it in, it can be shocking to see how little is left. I think the feeling some get from such a reveal is fear that everything they need...their security blanket of enveloping stuff...has been stripped away. I feel like the stifling brain drain has been cleared away...opening space for creativity, collaboration + possibility to flourish. I exclaim that it is liberating to see how little is needed to do what we do well!
I am currently moving everything out of our kitchen so that some work can be done. We will be living + eating in a different space in our home as this work is done, so I'm thinking through how we can do those things as comfortably as possible. At the same time, I'm thinking through what we truly need in our kitchen when we put it back together + trying to get things moving in that direction now.
Like those work spaces, our kitchen needs to function. It functions as a place to create simple, nourishing meals made from whole foods. It is a space where we can gather + laugh + love + grow. If there is space for these, then we have everything we need.
