Lately, I’ve been accumulating a lot of new keys. Work keys, house sitting keys, studio keys and bike lock key. Currently, I am in possession of 12 keys. I only had one metal key (excluding my minnie mouse piggy bank key that I had when I was nine) in my life until I was 24 and that was my house key. One key. I use to be jealous of my friends that had many keys (keys for the garage, safe, car, work etc…)
There is something about the sound of a small piece of metal fitting into a lock and unbolting it that I find very satisfying. It’s about being able to gain access to something that was once locked.
