A Writing Rose

Got Junk?


For several years now, I have been on a journey to simplify my life. I want to be a writer when I grow up.

However, that process has been stymied by junk. I started pitching several years ago. My garage was piled higher than I am tall. Not good. It took a while, but little by little, I got rid of things.

I have downsized my possessions from a four bedroom/two bath house to stuff that would fit in a studio apartment.


The kids are grown, I cannot empty the nest so I’m going to sell it. I don’t want to haul all of this stuff around for the rest of my life. Plus, I want to start over in a house just for me. I want to decorate it how I want it and not based on what my family needed during the child-rearing years.

So if you are overwhelmed by stuff, click on this link and read some of the posts published. The website features other folks’ journeys to less stuff.
