It really is sad. I feel for you. The day will come when I will be going through the well loved possessions of my stepmom or mom. I'm personally in the process of weeding my possessions preparing for retirement in the next couple of years. It's making me feel quite lighthearted since I was getting anxious to quit my job. Now I feel like I'm moving toward the day. Hope your sale goes well.


I know how hard it must be.


It is very difficult, but accumulating items, which is part of all the happiness in life, means they have to go on to someone at some point. I know when a group of us used to visit sales, garage sales, estate sales, it was always with a thought about the persons' life, "what story was behind this item", etc.

It's hard, no matter how you slice it. Letting their stuff go is not letting them go. We tend to talisman objects (okay, me) but truly, only a few can really be infused with that. The rest is just adiaphora.


Oh Bron, this is poignant! And so true. I think I'll go clean out a closet.


Thanks for the comments, everyone. :) I think our problem was that we weren't sure we were keeping the "right" stuff. But we finally figured out that the things we liked and had significance for us were, by default, the "right" things.

Makes sense, right?

    ----"I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure -- that is all that agnosticism means." - Clarence Darrow, Scopes trial, 1925.

    ----"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." - Sir Stephen Henry Roberts (1901-1971)
