Birthday

My birthday is coming up soon (next monday). Thinking of it reminds me how some people insist on trying to buy me presents (for instance my mother). I tend to be very clear that I don't actually want anything (or at least anything that can be reasonably afforded, I do have a place in my heart for a owning a few 100 watt solar panels).

I believe I have far, far too much stuff. I'm actually leaning toward the idea that being able to attach all of my possessions to my bicycle (and still bike with it) is a worthy goal. (Or should I make an exception for books?)

Most of the stuff in my apartment is clutter, filling my environment with junk that I have to waste precious awareness trying to process. Where should it go? What does it do? Where is the useful thing among all the other things? What do I need to do to maintain it?

At this point in my life stuff just seems to be an unnecessary burden.

Strange how thinking of birthdays leads me onto a tirade against the things filling my space.

However I did realize what I most wanted from others. To feel like others are interested in my various obsessions and actually encourage me to talk about them.

Well, you know you have an avid listener for anything about bikes and/or anticapitalist use of technology :)

Now the problem is to figure out how to actually put it into practice.

Missed wishing you a happy birthday on your actual birthday because I was in planes and airports and such. But hey! Happy birthday!
