I am nostalgic for my twenties (most of them, anyway; twenty and twenty-one were squandered at college; twenty-four was kind of a wash, too) but I can tell you for sure that they weren’t as great as I now crack them up to be. I was always broke, I was often lonely, and I had some really terrible clothes. But my life was shiny and unblemished. Everything was ahead of me. I walked around with an abiding feeling that, at any given time, anything could go in any direction. And it was often true. - Meghan Daum

Is buying something at a Christmas market the same
as eating seafood by the seaside?

walking through the forest we found a stone,
carried it home,
and upon arrival,
discovered a price tag on the bottom

the tyranny of my belongings

last week to partner, "I'm feeling tyrannised by our belongings."

a week later, partner, "umm, where did the sofa go?"
