unfeminine me?

this is a doubt that often crosses my mind... no, am otherwise perfect (in my view, of course)... have a soon-going-to-be teen daughter... but i have never found it exciting to change the looks of my home. one good, solid reason i put forth is: since this is the 12th home that i have set up in 17+ years of marriage, i have lost the gusto...
and this is not an excuse... when i look back at the urge to gather knick knacks way back in the last century (yes, i was married by then), i am appalled... how could i spend hours scouting for that perfect side table (hours were not because of the lack of looks of the table, but the depth of our purse then) or the vase that would go with the centre table.
now, i just settle for the least effort, least hassle decor. and no pangs, honestly. this way i am happier... that is only what i strive for these days...

decor that soothes the eye is an externality, that which heals the mind is the leat perceptible, hence doesnt need arrangement. nature, on any day, is way ahead of nurture.
