"You can find the entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects."
We have things everywhere, don't we? Things in cupboards. Things in drawers. Nice things that we leave out for others to see. Embarrassing things we hide but can't quite face getting rid of entirely. Then there are things around us that aren't ours. Things that aren't really anybody's. Things that are sort of everybody's. Things we didn't know were there. Things long forgotten. Things treasured everyday. Things we give to other people to show them how we feel. Things that remind us how we feel.
Things tell stories. Things are like little post-its reminding us and others about who we are.
I think things make for great subjects.
