Separation Anxiety

Max suddenly became very quiet yesterday. Sam whimpered all through last night. In our own ways, we're preparing for my upcoming extended absence from the family.

We had a plumbing disaster this weekend and lost a lot of old papers and documents. Tossing stuff is always painful at our house. Maybe they were reacting to that? Somehow I don't think so.

I finally completed the conversational footprint analysis (again). I've decided why these papers are so painful - they point out and force me to examine all of my inadequacies as a human being.

Just yesterday I came across a quote which I think is quite relevant to our "need" to collect/ archive material as well as immaterial subjects: "The poor architect succumbs to every temptation and the good one resists it."

Grandma E used to say about one of her many black wool coats, "This coat collects everything except men."

I think I collect paper--it is attracted to me like iron filings to a magnet, and it sticks to me the same way.

No matter how much I throw away, more is always always always coming coming coming.
