Capsule Wardrobe

Joy points upward, said Marie Kondos.

Moose. Indian. said Henry Thoreau.

I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin, said Gwyneth Paltrow.

The purest journey to a minimalist wardrobe begins with a brief 20 hour flight to China. As you stumble to the baggage claim, watch the fools lurch for their worldly possessions. Scoff at their weakness for all the physical items without which they cannot live. Laugh with glee when nearly an hour later the room has emptied and your own suitcase has not come round on the belt. Laugh because you have been freed from the oppression of objects.

Live off the contents of your carry on for the next few days. Shun society’s tools such as cleanser and nail clippers.

Only by handwashing your underwear in the sink can you truly let go of worldly possessions.
