Minimalism and the Sentimental

Monday, 23 May 2016

The image of living minimally paints a picture of tranquility, peace, and freedom from all things valueless. But the tricky part is getting to that point.

Friday, 22 April 2016

Today is Earth Day. It's a great opportunity to spend a little time thinking about the greater world and all that live here.
