ten items

What I took in the end for my 'ten items'

- my work pass
- a bit of a broken vacuum cleaner
- a book I wrote
- a photo of my kids
- a compass
- a mirror frame that my son made for me at school years ago
- complete works of WB Yeats (battered and torn slightly foxed)
- ? something I've forgotten
- a planisphere
- one page of my translation of the Dao

That order is a gradual slide from the practical and impersonal to the personal and impractical, with my kids the pivot between the two. The person I was working with identified a theme of orienting yourself within chaos, by the imposition of order.
