From The Minimalists “About”, some stuff/feelings/etc. I bet a lot of New Yorkers in particular can relate to:
It all started with a lingering discontent in our lives. A few years ago, as we approached age 30, we had achieved everything that was supposed to make us happy: we had great six-figure jobs, nice cars, big houses with more bedrooms than inhabitants, pointless masses of toys, and scads of superfluous stuff.
And yet with all that stuff, we weren’t satisfied with our lives. We weren’t happy. There was a gaping void. We discovered that working 70-80 hours a week for a corporation and buying even more stuff didn’t fill the void. In fact, it only brought us more debt and stress and anxiety and fear and loneliness and guilt and overwhelm and depression.
What’s worse, we found out we didn’t have control of our time and thus didn’t control our own lives. So in 2010 we took back control using the principles of minimalism to focus on what’s important. […] Toward the end of 2012, we moved from our hometown, Dayton, Ohio, to a cabin in Montana as a four-month experiment, followed by a move to beautiful Missoula in 2013, where we cofounded Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house for the indie at heart.
Join us for a special preview of the new book, and an opportunity to buy it early, tomorrow night at 7PM with The Minimalists themselves, and free wine!

the universe is infinite;
you can feel it
when you gaze into the light
and when you close your eyes.
there’s something beautiful
beyond the stars, worlds
we will never know,
and the same beneath.
perhaps you should be told again
the worth of what’s inside?
to press your hand to your skin
and feel it,
to know that you have always
deserved to be found;
and that even alone
you are absolute
