How could I possibly have more musical scores on the top shelf of my closet?! What was I thinking when I stashed Irish drinking songs, Mendelssohn duets, and the original edition score of Massenet’s Esclarmonde? Really?
In fact, this collection I kept. For a couple of reasons: I do not have the energy to ship out any more music, and I really like these pieces, so they sit, for the moment, in front of my music bookcase.
I also found my college art history books – and I left college in 1975. And my notes from my art history classes at Columbia. Most of this stuff goes, but now I have all the space I need for the books I need. For the first time, possibly ever, I only have books that mean something to me. Two more bags gone!
Now I have to go through those plastic boxes I put on the empty shelves – I need to weed out the drek and maybe get smaller plastic boxes for the stuff I want to keep.
It’s all good. Five days to go!
