Lately Kit Katie, Arya and myself have been going to a lot of estate sales. Pouring over the house of another dead person is an incredibly strange feeling. You find a lot of very carefully used items. Benches with patinas you can’t just purchase, old crates, jars, containers, books, and tools. My latest find was a monkey wrench.
Somehow it is very satisfying to look at the life of another person. After pouring over their stuff you feel a kinship with them and it’s nice to feel like their things are not just going into a landfill.
