We've been having a clearing out of the accumulation of the two households we brought together several years ago. We've made discoveries about ourselves and each other through the process of letting go of the fragments of our past lives. We've had to, once again, say good-bye to loved ones whose belongings were kept as a bridge to a past that has passed. We have distilled our memories to essentials.
A couple of discoveries on my part are these: 1. a bad photograph does not improve with age, and 2. we could build a small house out of the books we have accumulated.
We are letting go, saying good-bye, and lightening our load.
At the end of the day a nice long soak.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
