Deaccessioning (letting go)

Having moved 3 times in two years, I like to think I have just the essentials. Sadly false.  Some of today’s divestitures:

  • A gray and purple Halloween wig (worn once)
  • How to Make Souffles (1963)
  • 3 inch heel mary janes i have owned for 8 years and worn 4 times.  (Slightly chewed)
  • a creepy broken paper mache marionette from Austria.
  • unmatched earrings (many)

Packing is a process of despair (“I’m not moving to Spain.  Not now and not ever” and exhilaration (“I don’t have to keep this broken marionette anymore!”)
