George Carlin, The Swami of “Stuff”

Minimalism and change seem to be recurring themes that I keep running in to lately. Of course, this just may have something to do with the blogs I read, the twitter tweeps I follow, and the links that radiate out from both sources.

I’m ensnared in both vices right now, they seem to go hand in hand with the currents that course through my life in the present moment.  Change has led to minimalism, partly out of necessity, and partly out of choice to let go of “stuff”.

Minimalism invaded my life big time last year as we prepared to move from a four bedroom, four bath home to a two bedroom, two bath home that is half the size. I looked around in preparation for boxing our stuff, and just had this huge, exploding, orgasmic epiphany about how ridiculous all this stuff is… I mean, why?

Whenever I think about “stuff” or write about it, I think about George Carlin’s wonderful piece on “Stuff”.  It’s hysterically true, and helps put things in perspective.
