      Spectacular. I could read about Minimalism forever.

      The shadow is real. The purpose of living with less (stuff and distractions) is to get closer to an embrace with life’s most fundamental essence. That doesn’t always mean “light” though. Sometimes the deepest truths are... dark. Then again, I’m with Plath — shadows are beautiful.

        You should totally grab this book! You'll lose it, it was so good. I was expecting more of a critique of the Kondo style of minimalism after reading Jia's review but it was so so so much more.

          Totally. I'm excited about all of this. Chayka's great.
