This is a window in my office. It looks out on the back field and up the road a bit. I get the afternoon sun streaming through here most days. I like its effect on these bottles, spreading defused colored light around the windowsill. I can't remember where I picked them up, but enjoy their company up here. I should tell you, ya, I enjoy collecting junk, odd bottles, small boxes, picture frames sans pictures. Often, Elenka's eyes will just roll, when I tell her I need this 'special' object. Now, as other members of my family look to be unloading everything and making their homes as stream-lined as possible, I'm collecting stuff. They're kissing goodbye to objects like pictures on the walls, knickknacks and other seemingly trivial pieces of the world, and I'm welcoming material(some say crap) with open arms. My age and my world say I should be downsizing... I seem to be upsizing! What gives?
