Every increased possession loads us with new weariness.
John Ruskin (1819-1900)
I've been going through stuff these days -- too much stuff -- so when I read the Ruskin quote I thought exactly. I have felt exactly that -- weary -- of late, and beyond the usual sources of fatigue, I imagine the clutter of books I've read and clothes I've not worn and too many knickknacks and the stacks of papers are weighing me down. I've fantasized with a friend about getting rid of everything, piling the kids into a retro-fitted Air-stream trailer and taking off to see the country.
Reader, are you in?
