Is that even a word?! No. But it does conjure up words that promote like meanings. To behold, observe, perceive, see, discern, to be visible. All good ways of saying the same thing – things need to be viewable.
To a certain extent, this may be a necessity to only some of us. I find it incredibly helpful to see what I have in front of me. Very clearly available. Otherwise I forget what I have. In speaking and working with different ones I have found this is very common. You usually remember that you actually have the perfect handbag, jewellery, hammer, paintbrush etc. after the fact so you didn’t really need to re buy one for that special evening or project. This kind of thing can be very frustrating and not to mention financially sabotaging.
So, in theory, this is fine - keep things visible. But what happens when everything is visible? If you have no interests, projects or variety of belongings this may work. In reality though this is not a recipe for success. Everything out in the open will give you visual clutter syndrome. Then you will shut down and be no better off.
If you want this luxury of visibility in what I’m assuming is a limited space then the key is – wait for it... HAVE LESS.
