I found this picture today taken by photographer Jill Krementz of E. B. White writing. I love this spare, amazing barn-like room, don’t you? It makes me want to have my own spare, amazing barn-like room.

I have the privilege of reading Lisa Samson’s upcoming book Quaker Summer. It’s got me thinking about stuff and clutter and consumption and shopping for the fun of it. Being in France in a hobbit house has helped me tremendously in my addiction to shopping, thank goodness, though I still miss Ross and T.J. Maxx.

Simplicity is something I’ve longed for as an adult. I want space, less clutter, more freedom—both in my home and in my heart. Jesus, help me to live clutter-free. In every way.
