On the downside of physics and upside of downsizing.
The Law of Conservation of Mass states that matter can be rearranged in space, but never created. But can that really be true?
I moved this past weekend and I'm pretty sure that way more boxes came out of that truck
than went in it. Similarly, the Law of Conservation of Energy states that the total energy
of a system cannot change...and I know for absolutely sure that there's a lot less total energy
in mine this week.
If you've ever experienced a downsizing move, then you know that it has a science all it's own.
I've been making complex calculations on things like books-to-shelving ratios, creating pantry displacement theories, and deriving the statistical probability that I'll ever need any size 2
I can say one thing for certain, though. In this attempt to tread more lightly on the planet...
I'm going to need to have a lot fewer shoes.
