Last week I mentioned that I was reading “The Joy of Less” by Francine Jay. In amongst the decluttering guide are some real gems. One stuck in my mind and I find myself thinking about it as I look around the clear spaces in my home.
I quote from the book:
“Music is the space between the notes.” My interpretation of composer Claude Debussy’s words: beauty requires a certain amount of emptiness to be appreciated – otherwise, you have only chaos and cacophony.
For our purposes, we’ll put a minimal twist on this idea and say, “Life is the space between our things.”
This can also be applied to our lives in general. I am trying hard to have some space to just ‘be’ and it feels good. It is something we should all try.
Enjoy the space. 🙂
