It’s Moving Week here on the Bleader. Because it’s moving week here at the Reader.

I like moving. Not so much the physical part of the process, but the mental aspect of it. It’s an opportunity for renewal—to take stock. To leave some things behind, to start afresh. To get new stuff to replace the old stuff.

I’ve lived in the same neighborhood area for about the past 20 years. But I’ve had four different apartments during that time. And with each move, a dilemma: what to take, what not to take.

So for each move I conduct an inventory. What goes to the new place has to fall into one of two categories:

1. I love this.
2. I need this.
