Small is beautiful – a downsized dream

Written Sunday June 21 –I met a woman at the potluck luck  Saturday night who has downsided her life. I know a number of others who are in the process of doing that too so I thought I would share this little story with you.

But first, when I woke up the world was the most amazing colour I have ever seen. The sun was shining and the world was blue…this is how blue.Blue Day

OK, now for the rest of the small story…Kate reached a point in her life where she needed to have less. She saw this house on the internet, sold her 4 bedroom house and went for it. The house is 300 square feet. I went to see it this morning and it is beautiful. Spacious, lots of storage and lush decor. I am not a home photographer and looking at the pictures I took I realize that I missed the spirit of the place but here are a few pictures to give you some idea. I am off to a day of rest, writing and enjoyment.

    Wow Wow Wow Vicki I left for a couple of days and returned to read about your whole world opening up into beautiful hues of blue mixed together with music from the heavens and food from the gods…ice cream!!!
    Everthing sounds wonderful. The womans little house sounds like my dream home! Seriously what a great move.
    What a wonderful world you are discovering.
    Your picture taking of yourself is getting really good too…and you look sooo incredibly happy!

    Sounds like, looks like your trip is unfolding as you had hoped, dreamed. Do you have a place with your itinerary? Or is it fluid? Look forward to meeting you soon! Dominique McGrady, Comox Valley La Leche League leader

    Oh Dominique you are so right…only I don’t think I really imagined that it would be THIS amazing.

    It is pretty fluid…but has some form. Maybe if I can’t get the map to work I will put up a probable plan of action. It is a good idea.

    Keep passing my website around to anyone who might be interested in my trip and might like to meet me.
