too much stuff

i grew up in a house filled with beautiful things.  my parents are both collectors, of sorts, and they, together and separately, sought items over the years that suited our house, that suited their style, and iconic items that they just loved.  they were not wealthy people, but they would look and wait and then pounce when they found what they wanted at the right price.  it was, for me, a good way to grow up.

the funny thing is that i am not a collector.  i don't tend to accumulate-- i tend to buy things that i love from time to time, but i will just as easily turn around and sell or give away three things the next day.   and yet our house is tiny-- just under 1000 square feet-- so even our little amount of stuff looks like a lot.

i think i am becoming a minimalist.
