Thank you Leonard Cohen for planting these words in my brain:

"Like a bird on a wire

Like a drunk in a midnight choir

I have tried

In my way

To be free.”

I love Freecycle.
In Atlanta, I discovered free-sharing network when I moved from a house to an apartment in 2005. You list things you’re glad to part with for free; people email their interest and come pick them up. Way easier than a yard sale and just as fascinating to see who needs or wants which particular item.
In the three moves that followed, I used Freecycle to find — and then share — moving boxes more than items. In Lafayette, I didn’t sign up to find or unload anything. I just wanted to see what the locals were looking for (clothes, bikes, furniture) or getting rid of (paint, kittens, building materials). Over the months, the poetry of some of the longer entries has struck me, especially if you air out the words. Because no money is changing hands, people tell it like it is. Here’s a bit from today:
I have a handful
of used
kitchen
and household items
to give
someone. I will
list them below.
–Fry Daddy that
has
old grease in it,
and
a large container
of old peanut oil.
The oil
may
be rancid and
I don’t know what to do with it.
If someone is using
old grease
for a biofuel
or oil lamps,
this
would work for that purpose.
The peanut oil in the jug
may
be fine for cooking,
but it’s open
and it’s expired
(though the container is full,
it has been opened).
The Fry Daddy
itself
is
in working condition
and was used
very
very
little.
It has a lid
for storage.
It’s just been
sitting
in my cabinet
for years now,
unused
after the first couple times
because I had to
stop
cooking
when I fell ill
a few years ago.
It’s dirty
and needs cleaned.
