"EVERYTHING WORTH WHILE TAKES TIME. PATIENCE. TRUST. SET AN INTENTION AND THEN LET IT GO. THE BUD OF A FLOWER IS JUST AS PRECIOUS AS THE SEED AND THE BLOOMING. LET NATURE WORK IT'S MAGIC WITH THE FINE DETAILS OF THE SUN, WATER AND SURROUNDING EARTH. IT'S ONLY NATURAL." -#InTheField
What’s in my current field?
I'm dreaming of a tiny house.
To design. To build. To use.
A tiny space under 400 square feet. Width 8.5 feet. Height 13.5 feet.
A tiny space to put my own personal stamp on.
1. I’ve lived in big houses.
2. Small houses.
3. Micro Apartments and 4. Bachelor Units.
5. I’ve lived out of a suitcase.
6. I’ve lived with two frat guys in a one room apartment.
7. I’ve lived in a house with a pool and a zen garden named after me.
8. I’ve lived on my own.
9. I’ve lived with roommates aging from their 20’s to 60’s and 100's in dog years.
… I’ve lived in more places than my ten fingers can count.
The average home size in the UK is 818 square feet.
The average home size in Hong Kong: 484 square feet.
Sweden: 893 square feet.
Why do statistics show homes in the United States are Still. Getting. Larger?
Instead of referring to this intention as a tiny house, perhaps I should call it a "world house."
I no longer want to live with the idea of paying rent for a place I'm barely spending time in. I don’t want a mortgage tying me down right now either. I've come to terms that I'm not well suited for a 9-5 job or working 80 hours per week. I don't want my work to be a separation from my life where I feel the need to take a vacation away from it.
There are a lot of things I do want but not a lot I need.
I’m experimenting with this notion.
I'm revitalizing a relationship with my belongings.
I no longer believe in scattered storage spaces.
I appreciate my belongings and thank them for what they do or what joy they spark.
I’ve cleared, cleaned and donated.
There is less clutter, less consumption and less waste.
The “bigger is better” mantra is now old-school.
One-of-a-kind has more character.
I’m holding on to only things with meaning.
I'm embracing the idea of cognitive architecture.
Renewal. Rebirth. Regeneration. Reimagining.
I believe in a new consciousness of consumerism: slow food, slow fashion.
I believe in intentional manufacturing with “mindfulness”.
I believe in investing in real shit that will last forever.
I believe in quality over quantity.
I believe in a friendlier environment and a lower environmental footprint.
Reduce. Repair. Reuse. Recycle.
A tiny house on wheels serves my current functions, flexibility, mobility and lifestyle.
Outside of this --- infinite landscapes.
In this --- aesthetic experiences.
My heart yearns daily for a sense of reverence+wonder+awe.
I choose novel spaces. I choose novel environments.
When I enter this natural space, I see and feel my dreams connecting.
To create. To explore. To experiment. To practice. To pause. To expand.
It’s real. It’s raw. It’s always changing and evolving. It’s always here and now, whether it's in a big house, in a tiny house or in a world house.
It: The Magical Field: A Space to Be & Love.
In The Magical Field right now, this is my intention.
The tiny house will surely change through the seasons of time but right now,
I am dreaming of a tiny house because I love wide open spaces.
