I used to dread packing. Having to think about all the material things that we might need elsewhere to recreate or run from (depending on our reasons for travelling) our home.
Packing makes me think carefully about the importance that I attach to clothes. Do clothes really matter? Do they really represent who we are? Are they are reflection of our mood for the day? A way to lift up our spirit? A way to keep people out? To invite people in? Do we mind if people judge us by what we wear? Do we want to stand our or blend in with the crowd?
These are some of the many questions that pop into my mind when packing. How do you feel about packing? What does it mean to you?
