There’s Plenty of Room in a Coffin, Unless You’re Breathing.

There’s plenty of room in a coffin.  Unless you want to Live. Because you CAN’T take it with you if it’s tangible.  This is so entirely true that some hoarders are compelled to reverse their habits so as not to leave unwanted items as a sad inheritance .  Shortly before tossing something in the trash, I sometimes have to ask myself not only the usual questions – do I want it or need it or love it?  But: will my kids want it or need it or love it?  And then: would ANYbody want it or need it or love it?   Clearly, everything once passed the litmus test; otherwise I would never have owned it.  Life is not static though, and the past is too crowded for everyday living, as is a coffin.  Or an urn.  Or an ashtray.

Eight years. 116880 cigarettes not smoked, saving $33,427.68. Life saved: 1 year, 5 weeks, 6 days, 20 hours, 0 minutes. IMAG0568
