IN PAIRING DOWN
In pairing down and letting go in recent years, I went through a box filled with childhood clothing. Among the contained pieces, was this felt Robin Hood hat acquired at age five during a family trip to Disneyland. I snagged the remaining feather, sticking it alongside a number of books residing on my nightstand. A quick photo helps capture the memories that float to the surface when presented with the object, while not having to fill space with the crumpled felt and brittle plastic remains. Win-win!
