    This coming week is lane cleanup.

    Woo hoo!!! My chance to dump all the crap that's accumulated in the basement and on shelves. The only hitch will be my wife. She's a sentimental packrat. I'm the exact opposite. Memories exist in your mind, not an object... Chuck it!!! It's going to be an interesting week.

    In my youth and early adulthood,

    I 'd collect and save items and memories from every event in a full history. It's only later that I've realised what was the point as most of the hoard is never looked at again! I'm not a minimalist as life is convenient with things to hand. Bit doesn't life look tidy in the...
