In Defense of Paper
I know this blog has been about my obsession with paper, and the ways I use it to bring joy and peace into my life. However, I want to write about my other great love, tableware. I own seven sets of tableware, that’s right seven! Four of the sets are fine China, and i’m willing to admit that may be an overabundance of tableware. But very little of what I own was purchased by me, so who really is to blame here?
I first stumbled across the idea of mindfulness, while looking into a magazine called Flow (Joe still giggles every time I mention the magazine and its name). Flow is a magazine that focuses on a love of paper, and has become one of my favorite reads. One of the main themes of the articles is mindfulness. Since that first encounter with the idea, I have been seeing it pop up more and more. It was a focus at my school where we had a few days of mindfulness training this winter. Another one of my favorite magazines, The Magnolia Journal, featured mindfulness last spring.
