How you place things

At long last, the bulk storage unit and attendant shelves in our living room, were replaced with a built-in bookcase, something I picked up at the ReStore. Now the edges are regular and clean. The difference in depth from the plane of the wall to the edge of the table is about 8”. The change in depth frees up just enough floor space to turn the table 90°, and thereby induce a loop of circulation around it. Such a small, seemingly insignificant change. But for anything that moves on two legs, the world just got a little easier. We think that housing the homeless is more difficult than this simple improvement in how we sit down at dinner, but it’s not.
