My brother will love this talk, it's short so it won't take up his time and it's about living with less. There has been a movement call Minimalism that has taken root on the internet and although I understand it, I can't see myself adopting it wholeheartedly. Then again I can't adopt vegetarianism and atheism wholeheartedly. What I can adopt though is living in a small space. for some strange society associates grand homes as symbols of success, but for me it is about cleaning, securing, nesting. The bigger the space, the more I have to clean. The bigger the space, the more expensive things I have or people think I have and then I get broken into. The bigger the space, the more I want to stay in rather than go out exploring.

Don't get me wrong, I love space and interiors, but in an ideal world I want sufficient space, big enough for me to feel comfortable and happy when I'm in and small enough that I would feel inspired to leave on a regular basis. Just my thoughts.
