2018年11月









商店街の中に佇んでいた家から、近くにお店がなんにもない住宅街に引っ越した。





家選びのポイントして「スーパーが近い」「コンビニが近い」といった買い物の条件があるが、スーパーは一番近くても2km。





歩いてはさすがに遠いので、車で行っている。コンビニも近くにない。駅もちょっと遠い。





そのかわり、私道で娘はお隣さんのひとつ上の子と遊べるし、知らない人は入ってこない。閉鎖的なところは安心だ。









前の吉祥寺の家は目の前の道を大勢の人が行き交い、土日は大変なことになる。

“Want to know how to make yourself instantly unhappy? Compare yourself with someone else.”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism

“Why do we own so many things when we don’t need them? What is their purpose? I think the answer is quite clear: We’re desperate to convey our own worth, our own value to others. We use objects to tell people just how valuable we are.”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism

“We are more interested in making others believe we are happy than in trying to be happy ourselves. —FRANÇOIS DE LA ROCHEFOUCAULD”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism
