We have too much stuff...my mother's Limoges doorplates are on ebay. Oxfam receives daily visits from us with excess clothes, things, books. Do we really need books? records? photographs? Everything can be digitalised. I have finally offered my two last pcs on freecycle and am stripping off all the files-- all the things you forget! all the business you have done which passes on to historical oblivion but which seemed so critical at the time. References for people who have moved away, complaints about items long forgotten. Agendas for meetings and more meetings and more meetings. What is it all about? I think, after all, it is actually all about the people you know and love and your interaction with them, whether over a bottle of wine, a pack of cards, a good meal or a shared experience.
this sounds very serious but it's not really. We know life is good, it's just winter and bloody awful weather.
