still so far to go

July 5, 2008

this afternoon, we went to the beach.  while soaking in the sun, i realized how far i still have to go to become minimalist.  i looked around at our belongings strewn all over the sand and counted over 50 items:

  • 3 large inflatable devices
  • 19 small plastic toys
  • 2 chairs
  • 6 towels
  • 2 coolers
  • 1 pop-up tent
  • 3 cell phones/camera
  • shirts/sandals/shorts
  • soda cans/bags of chips/fruit snacks
  • 3 bags to carry everything

the goal was to have 3.5 hours of relaxation – and we needed 50 man-made things to make that happen.  we’ve got so far to go.
