light weights

My father collected weights. Not for excercise -though moving them to every new house has proven to be quite the work-out- but because he had this idea that a philosopher is a weight that wants to way itself, and he was fond of the shine of old metal objects that had been used a lot. So i also have a collection of old nails, and tin inkpots, and all sorts of things that are a nightmare to pack but a little gift every time you unwrap them.

Today, in the window, the weights proved quite light.
