Process of Elimination

I’ve officially started saying goodbye to my some of my past.

My home office is filled with collectibles, the largest percentage of which is dominated by Wonder Woman and Star Wars.  There are some odds and ends from a variety of other franchises too.  Action figures, dolls, statues… you get the idea.  I kept say for months now that I needed to start putting these things out on eBay.  I just don’t have a clue what I’m doing on that front, and I really don’t want to bother with it.  I could have taken it to a consignment store.  Decided not to.  Instead, one of my friends has decided he’s going to sell them on eBay for me.  Things have been negotiated.  All I had to do was get the stuff ready to go.

The first batch of WW action figures left out my front door this afternoon.  I’m not going to lie.  It hurts.  Not as badly as I feared, but I wasn’t as numb as I hoped either.  There’s a lot of money tied up in those, which is part of the point.  But there’s a lot of energy tied up in it too, positive and negative.  It’s keeping me stuck.  I hope these toys end up in the hands of those who will truly appreciate them.

  1. It’s curious I’ve been into the same trade regarding a part of my stamp collection… and even some good paintings I inherited from my Dad. It hurts, but we have (at least I have) to eat and pay the rent and the fuel for the heater in winter. I thought it was better to sell my stamps and my Dad’s stuff than myself

  2. Much easier, yes. Money is rounded by filth, pain and absolute unfairness, but I’ve been wrongly accustomed to a certain life-style I have strived to keep. Poverty means ugliness in several aspects, and I just hate ugly things and ways. I’s been a difficult choice for me to eat poorly, dress alike and endure coldness at home for the sake of honesty and self-esteem.

  3. Stuff. It gathers. It gathers dust. I have had many collections over the years. They collected dust.

    Just like the money…oh, the money spent on jewelry. As I age, I have become minimalist. No make-up, fewer shoes, no jewelry, no collections. Except pictures. I do collect pictures.

    Just my evolution. Perhaps you are evolving.
