Move over Marie Kondo! We’re looking at home as a center of commerce and creativity — and a critical anchor in the Age of Overload. This podcast also considers our attitudes toward money, marriage, and the home; how to make work and family life flow like music; mindful housekeeping; and the history of dust from the Big Bang to the bunnies hiding underneath your bed. Stay tuned — and you’ll never look at home the same way again.
VALERIE is the Chief Storyteller for Reinventing Home, an online magazine exploring how home shapes our culture, creativity, and character. Isabel Allende calls this publication Brain Pickings for the Home—a thinking person’s guide to the well-lived life. Our contributors explore home as a personal sanctuary and interactive hive, and how home contributes to our health, happiness, and productivity. Valerie calls her own features “a mindful approach to home with a Jungian twist” and considers everything from the secret lives of our possessions to how the dust underneath your bed is related to the creation of the cosmos. Reinventing Home is nonprofit journalism at its best—a virtual living room for an enlightened conversation about the way we feel about our nests and the bigger issues that are shaping home today, from technology to climate change.
