Stuff


“You can’t take it with you.”
Surprised
Kathy’s late cousin George.
His Hillsborough house was a
testament to
stuff.
George loved model airplanes
in every room
half-assembled projects
belt sander
saw
assorted tools
glue
paint.
George believed in bulk buying.
We removed
200 cans of pop
100 rolls of toilet paper
14 gallons of Roundup
11 jars of mustard
8 boxes of “Rice-a-Roni”
and MORE.

I fight my battle with
stuff.
Sold LPs
CDs took their place.
Donated novels
art books line my shelves.
Downsized from two homes to a
storage locker filled with
stuff.

Quakers aspire to
simplicity.
Friends believe that a person’s spiritual life and character
are more important than
the quantity of goods he possesses
.”

Eschew
stuff.
