Today I learned, the Japanese method of decluttering the stuff that brings you joy, if it doesn't anymore then get rid of it, take a guess who cleared his dresser drawers of stuff today!

I've noticed a few posts about de-cluttering the Japanese style and I've even watched her TV show but do have a comment or two regarding it.

I wouldn't say I love or that my stapler brings me joy nor my tape dispenser, but regardless I do need them! I could go on and on with other examples but she's speaking more to personal effects I guess!

I think it may it hold true when you have many of the same items. Say 50 T shirts. Pick the ones that make you happy when you wear them, and let the surplus go.

IMHO
I also suspect there is a life lesson about "sparking joy". What I got from Marie Kondo is that we have many choices to make in life about belongings and life paths. She is teaching people to identify what brings them joy and encouraging them to do that. It's about creating happiness. Actually choosing happiness. I also think that there are cultural differences at play. Japanese are traditionally minimalists.

Anyway that was my take.

Default Baryshnikov

Forty-five years ago today, July 27, 1974, Mikhail Nikolayevich "Misha" Baryshnikov made his American Ballet Theatre debut, dancing opposite fellow expatriate Natalia Makarova just weeks after his defection from the Soviet Union. He was a sensation. He has never returned to Russia.

In my opinion he is one of the finest male ballet dancers I have ever seen. He dances like a male stag leaping and frolicking through the woods. Bruce Lee wanted to train him as a martial artist. They were on the same level skill wise. Ballet dancers are incredible athletes.
