If you don't beleive that things can have a soul you should try to give some of your things a name. Take a chair, bike, your PC, anything. Give it a name. And voila the thing comes to live!
My current owner is a lone man in his late 60's with a true love for old cars. This love is my luck and why I'm still alive. Most of my sisters and brothers went to the graveyard years ago.
