My Marine son thinks I should keep things simple.
“I don’t need a lot of material possessions,” Sgt. Alex once remarked during a visit to my coastal cottage filled to the gills with too much stuff.
This remark came from a mature young man who, as a boy, had constant visions of owning his own TV and video games, FAO Schwarz and Discovery Channel stores, etc., etc., etc. I don’t know where he got that from.
