    Thank you, Lucent, for this beautiful and inspiring post. I went to your website to get a little more acquainted with you and am awed by your gorgeous photographs and great writing. You are such a strong woman—I wish for you to keep your vision for a very long time!

  2. A great reminder of what’s important in life. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Courtney, what a beautiful summary. I hadn’t gathered about you eyesight in previous posts. You have a wonderful attitude about it. Just a quick note to let you know I had the yard sale today for my mother in law’s semi-cleanout today. A big amount was ready at dawn and much sold between 6 am and 8 am. I sold the Southern Living Cookbooks and the disware sets for a song but it was good to know I wouldn’t have to lift the heavy boxes again after lifting them into the customers’ cars! A man bought the whole box of CDs, & DVDs etc. Books didn’t sell nor did the big amount of Christmas items, none valuable. We didn’t try any clothes cause I know they don’t sell. I will give them to an organization that helps women going back into the workplace. I made about $300 in 4 hours or so and could have made double but wanted to sell while I had a willing customer so my prices were LOW…. I will do it one more time then off it goes to the thrift shop. Idea…I would like to keep the Christmas items and take to a teacher to let her children pick an item for their family members to give at Christmas!

  6. Courtney, thank you so much for having me guest post! And to Karin, John, Gail, Michelle & Paula, thank you for your kind and generous words. I have read them several times with a smile.

  7. Beautifully explained as always Lucent. I love your references to space as both physical and emotional. Time is my family’s luxury too allowing us to eat good food, take more walks and be mindful of our consumption. Thank you for a great read xo

  11. Wonderful post Lucent!

    “I struggle to not be stifled by the stuff that still remains, even while knowing that some of it is necessary for the rhythms of our daily life. But I’m sharing this alongside my husband too. I am incredibly blessed to have a life partner and best friend who understands my driving forces for a more stark level of minimalism than he is inclined to. And it is here that my fantasy version must meet with compromise”

    Really resonated with this, as I’m the more ‘physical’ minimalist in my marriage too – I have to admit he is 100% supportive though :)

  12. Wonderful thoughtful and considered words Lucent. Time and headspace are what it’s largely about….!
