I am contemplating a year (for a start) of no (or few) purchases.
Gifts given of experiences instead of things.
Or perhaps gifts given that are made instead of bought.
We are moving.
To save money.
To have less to take care of.
To focus more on the things we want and less on the things we don't want.
We will be selling things.
Throwing things away.
Trying not to add new things.
Except for one last thing.
This thing we have been talking about getting for a long time,
and he fits right in,
and Cecily (especially) is overjoyed.
