Kim John Payne writes:
Imagine your home…
- as a place where time more a little slower
- becoming less cluttered and more visually relaxing
- with space, and time, for childhood-and with time for one another every day
- as a place where play and exploration are allowed, and honoured
- having more ease as you begin to limit distractions and to say no to the stress of too much, too fast, too soon.
- as a sense of calm and security take hold
- becoming a place where those we love know it, by virtue of our attention, protection, and appreciation
