Well, as you may be aware, we have been socked with frigid weather and one of the hazards is black ice. I learned this when I took a fall last week and broke my arm. After much moaning and groaning about the frustrating inconvenience, I am trying to make the best of the situation. This is truly a lesson on living in the moment. The most menial task demands my complete attention. (Try applying deoderant with your left arm to the same arm pit. This is an exercise that makes you want to go completely natural). Right now I am pecking away with one hand at the keys, but getting quicker by the day. What I have been able to do is post a few pages that explains “aesthetic minimalism.” I invite you to read and send me your comments and questions.
In the meantime, I can tell you a little more about future posts. I am going to renovate my “room with a view” and will chronicle it all here. I am inviting my brother, Gregory, a master interior designer of small spaces, and my sister-in-law, Mary, one of the top personal shoppers at a major lifestyle retailer, to discuss how to maximize minimal spaces and wardrobes.
Also, (though I am on the bench) I will share how this woman of a certain age (who broke a sweat at the mere thought of carrying a bag of groceries up a flight of stairs) trained and completed her first sprint triathlon, lost over 30lbs, found her inner athlete, while enjoying and inhaling every moment.
So, please come visit me again and, if this blog strikes a chord…I would be honored if you were to forward to your friends.
Stay warm and watch out for black ice!
