Lighten Up

Tuesdays with Laurie

In late September I had the pleasure of reuniting with several people I’d gone to high school with. It wasn’t a formal reunion. Rather, it was a gathering of individuals who’d attended Orange Glen High School in Escondido, California, who now reside in the Pacific Northwest.

It was an enjoyable visit. In talking with people, I learned that in addition to our age, shared school, and the fact that we live in the Pacific Northwest, we have another common denominator. Without exception, the people Len and I spoke with are contemplating, or in the process of downsizing.

Within this collective mindset, it turns out that less is more, and that “he who dies with the most toys” doesn’t win.

What was the last physical item you offloaded?

  1. I wish I could ‘downsize’ but I’m a ‘collector’ of books. Does this make me a bad person? (Sorry for that, just kidding)
    Really though, I just can’t get rid of my hundreds of books, and I know this will be a big problem when I pass…
    Regards. Marie.
