What if you had to leave all your personal belongings behind? You are only allowed to pack 1 suitcase. What would you choose to pack?
I was forced to send almost all, ie. around 99% of my personal belongings into storage, in a warehouse. I was renting a short term leased apartment and the company refused to allow me to bring my belongings. “Only carry luggage allowed”, they warned in an email.
I felt lost. My belongings do not make me whole. But I needed them to do my work. I was working. Freelance as an artist and required my art paraphernalia. From mid-April until early August 2021, I was dry. Devoid of inspiration, feeling strange and lost.
If you can only pack 10 items of personal belonging, what would you bring to your new home?
