Poet and activist Margaret Randall wrote a wonderful new book: My Life in 100 Objects (New Village Press.)
I love objects, impractical especially, objects
funny as people and every single Sunday when I can
I go to one flea market or another doesn’t matter where
like my friend Albert who lives in a small rent controlled
apartment. He’s lived there forever. Last week Albert said
I love chairs and bought 32 of them over the years and so
I have 32 chairs in this apartment. I only sit on one he said.
