Just a quick visit to let you know that the Minimalism Game has started!!!!! With a bit of planning – those that know me know how much I love a chart – I think I should manage the first 7 days. I’m trying not to look too far ahead because once you start calculating the figures they get steeply scary from next week.
Joined now by a few friends it has been especially interesting how much we have philosophised about the meaning of stuff. Its emotional and memorial qualities, its uses, how long we’d give before deciding we are never going to ‘need’ it and whether a group of objects counts as one or many – specifically whether Encyclopedia Britannica is counted as a single item or by each volume. I think this is going to be a fascinating month.
I’ll keep you posted.
Until we meet again. Moke.
