I just discovered your blog and can’t wait to dig down into it. Both your writing and philosophy are wonderful.
I loved this post, though I do disagree with this assumption.
“This lifestyle is not practical for everyone. For example, if you’re in college, if you have kids and a family, or if you own a brick-and-mortar business, your circumstances will likely prohibit such an extreme reduction of possessions.”
Families with kids can embrace the minimalist nomad lifestyle too.
We have a daughter, 10 (and already home-schooled), but are in the process of selling nearly everything so we can travel and live a more adventurous life together. We leave in two weeks; nearly everything is gone. We’re not storing much, just a couple of boxes.
Our daughter has done an amazing job of letting go of her stuff, and, I can already tell, is going to be much happier with fewer material things to get in the way of her thoughts and experiences.
Anyway, great post. Just wanted to point out that kids require only love, education and interesting experiences. They don’t need a room full of stuff to thrive. In fact, the room full of stuff often gets in the way.
Off my soapbox now! Looking forward to reading more.
