sorting and packing

posted in: life | 0

I’m trying to sort through three years’ accumulated books and clothes and art supplies and papers and dust and junk and souvenirs and stuff! Once again I have to condense my worldly things down to two suitcases and maybe a few cardboard boxes (maybe we’ll be able to ship a few things in a container ship? still not sure if it’s affordable). This is alternately sad and exciting, tiresome and pleasurable. The truth is that I love stuff. And I hate to get rid of anything that I might want later. Which makes this kind of fun and also really difficult. I keep thinking that I might rather just stay in South America for the rest of my life rather than have to decide what to bring and what to leave behind. Sigh.
