Attachment to objects

I can still remember how my heart broke when that mug broke....I drunk milk by it throught years of childhood and adolesence... and I was 20 when it suddenly fall on the ground and broke..It was white with a big smiling yelloe emoticon....When it broke I failed to fix it, so I only put it at the top of my black piano which was also broken and my familly can not afford to repair it for me cause we were living in the 1990s of Iraq where my father was stuggling day and night just to bring us some food...



Sometimes I like objects I use daily and get attached to it, I took care of them, treat them good, be loyal to them (am I exagurating?)...



Diego Giacometti, a sculptor who started his work as making tables, chairs, and accessories of furniture, ended as making some sculptures of great value...He was still making his art by sculpturing chairs and tables and he said once that somtimes a chair is more effective and charismatic in its presence than the king sitting on it....look at some of his works..













And these are objects from my daily life...I see them everyday...touch them...and started to be attached to them..when they are missing somewhere I go search for them....(am I having a displacement of my emotions, Because am little alone so instead of attaching to people I get attached to objects?....)....any way these are some of my best friends:

This our tea pot, like an emperor in his chair...


This the bottle of my coleage who never drink water but from it and if it disapear he will be angry at me and blame me...so I must keep my eye on it

This is the salt container....no i was wrong..this is not the salt container...this is my lover....she is a female...

And this is the box I use to put my studying tools (pencils, note papers, ect...), I like it cause it bears the name of a very dear person to me

These are my keys, my pencil, and my flash RAM, over one of the best books that increased my experience in diagnosis in psychiatry

This is also a small container of small things

This is the sofa a spend my relaxation time on it

When I relax on that sofa almost always I look at this sign in the wall, it is because of humidity, but I like it cause it looks like a heart..

I love things too. But now, I always buy ugly dishes and things like that and don't let myself get attached to them so I don't get upset if they break. It makes things less stressful, but there are still many old things I love and don't want to lose.
