Caress and release

How does one decide what to keep? What is the difference between holding on and coveting? What does it mean if something is mine? If I've cherished it and relinquished it, does that have any bearing on its intrinsic value?

Over the years, I've adopted a practice of observing, touching, and sometimes holding onto things, mostly natural objects, then re-purposing them. Sometimes the items are returned to the earth in a new place or used to create a piece of art. Sometimes they are given to others as a token of my love.

My new practice is simpler; caress and release. Easy as pie? We shall see about that.
