It occurs to me that I’m downsizing. I closed the forum and changed this website’s content to a more casual, sporadic Blog-style of reportage to further simplify my life, but I’ve also found myself getting rid of things in my personal life. I recently sold my very last box of comic books to Comix Connection. My collection once comprised 28 long boxes, all meticulously bagged and boarded. Now, it consists of a handful of Kamandi and The Defenders back issues that have yet to be reprinted in any sort of archival edition. I’ve also winnowed down my graphic novel collection, keeping only the archival editions for which I have nostalgia or which I’ll re-read several more times before I die. But it doesn’t stop there. My entire personal library has been cataloged on Library Thing. In the last week, I’ve pulled about 300 of those books off the shelves and put them aside as donations for my local libraries.
I’m not sure where this desire to downsize is coming from. I’m in relatively good health for a 43-year old man who has had his share, your share, and everyone’s share of whiskey, women, tobacco, and the occasional drug. I have no plans to die soon, nor have I moved into a smaller home. Indeed, this new house on the river is ten times the size of my previous apartment, and needs filled. And yet, since moving here, I find myself casting things aside, rather than keeping them. It’s all very strange.
