When kids are little they play that game of moving their toys from one place to another. My friend calls it 'You Go There, You Go There'. As we slog on with decorating the house, areas are starting to be finished and the last few house moving boxes are being unpacked. It's mostly books and a few photos - so I get to play 'You go there…' with things I haven't seen for a couple of years. In amongst them was another of my mini collections….
Passport pictures through the ages.
See now you're thinking 'But she said she wasn't a collector…'
Well as someone who has moved hemisphere/country/house on multiple occasions,
I can tell you that my personal archive of
crap treasure would fit into a small valise if it had to.
No inherited furniture, no large musical instruments -
pointing no fingers, but before we moved house we were a two harmonium/one piano family.
We're down to one harmonium and a piano now.
I'm not a minimalist, but I crave calm and space more than I need to keep stuff.
How about you - clutter or space…???
