I’m currently in a downsizing phase. My fantasy is to live the rest of my days ready for a trip to Paris – or an emergency hurricane evacuation – and not have to choose what to take with me. If I’m successful, everything I own will fit in one suitcase, preferably a carry-on bag.
Therefore, I’m going to pen this preemptive note to my family, hoping to stave off unwanted gifts. And I mean this in a very loving way.
