In my dreams, I am always clearing
out the cellar. Throwing away the
good things with the bad as I am
annoyed with how long they have
been there. What will we do with
all the stuff before the new owners
move in? We didn’t really move
that often, but when we did
it was life threatening. No
matter how many layers we
peeled off, there were still more.
I would love to walk through
life unencumbered but it is
not to be. I crave too many things.
So I accumulate and let go
over and over again. Even now
I wonder if I should leave all
my treasures in place for my
children to dispose of or shall
I shrink my possessions down
gradually until I am ready for
my smallest home.
