One of the things I've found interesting about moving back to the states is that, for the last year I've effectively been living out of a suitcase. It's been more comfortable than that, with hangers and closets and such, but the total volume of my life has been one large and one small suitcase, more or less. So now I'm back, and I have boxes and boxes of clothes. And just stuff. So much stuff. And quite honestly, I feel like I could just as happily leave everything packed away and my life would be just fine. I'm curious to see if, now that I'm back, the American habit of collecting objects reasserts itself.
