  1. I’ve been cleaning out my garage…..all those boxes of “old things we packed from times before”—lots of old letters….it struck me how strange it is that there is comfort in knowing it’s all there versus how devastating it would feel if, like in this poem, it was all burned away by the flames of a fire…..strange because none of it is stuff that I ever take out or ever even look at but for some reason I still just keep it all stored away in those boxes! Really, it’s like you said….it’s the memory that’s important because that is what remains when all else is gone.

So? What do you think?
