  1. I am very ambivalent about old stuff. I like to admire it, if it has some intrinsic beauty or value, but feel very trapped by having responsibility for preserving that value for others – i.e. having to keep and look after it. I guess I’ve grown up needing to be free to get up and go, and these things weigh me down. But I also get nervous about damaging things and reducing their perceived value. Your question brings up surprising emotions!

What do you think?
