In my "real" life I am overwhelmed just now by physical stuff. The real kind.
Right now in the process of packing up our "stuff," in advance of our move to the Galil (don't mean to shock loyal readers of this blog, which obviously has Jerusalem in the title...more on this subject in posting to come!).
Only a little bit into the process, and already can't believe how much stuff we actually have. Do we "need" all this stuff? Does it make any sense (environmental, social, physical) for us to keep so much stuff for ourselves? I don't think. Where should the line be in terms of stuff? Not sure. But giving thought to it.
In the meantime, enjoyed these two views on the subject of stuff, the first by the legendary George Carlin (of blessed memory) and the second by Annie Leonard.
