Follow my inner and outer travels as I stumble along with simple life, simplicity, downsizing and journey moderately minimal.

My new memoir contains chapters about my relationship with my clothes, downsizing, and my stuff. Writing about this in a very big public way has helped me get clear with myself and gain focus as I wander along.

It would take me many years to embrace the concept of living with less, and to reach the good place where I am now— but that afternoon was a beginning.

Life-in-Progress. When I first began publishing my minimal-ish wardrobe stories I had no idea thousands of readers around the world would read my posts.
