Mementos

I just put my high school diploma and my flight school certificate into the recycle bag. I took a photo of each one first. I decided recently that I have entirely too much stuff. I enjoy memorabilia, to some degree. I find it heatwarming to look at old photos and journals. At the same time, I also feel a bit burdened. How do I organize these things? Share them? Preserve them?

I realize this isn’t a big problem in the grand scheme of things. Currently, I’m thinning out the collection.

Crocuses coaxing; winter waning.
Maybe now I’ll stop complaining.

Joy may be coaxed or catalyzed, but rarely captured.
