We all have stuff; fonts, rubber mallets, digital images, cardboard boxes, emails, plastic tubs and even tubes, office clips and the like. All the objects that supposedly streamline life but instead make it complicated.
Take, for instance, the fonts on our computers that are meant to make life easy by giving endless choices when composing a text document. I will never use the Bodoni 72 Oldstyle font. I don’t like the way the font name sounds. Then it takes a good fifteen minutes to remember what I need to do so that the font is gone, for good. There is a refreshing calm that covers me when I imagine life with a short font list and no scrolling requirement. All that blank space on the tail of the pull down font list seems dreamy.
