For almost three years now, I have been discarding books, clothes, papers, and other relics of my life so far. I believe during this process I have been trying to discard physical bits while retaining the stories behind the things. I am just now finishing up a book about this process. My husband says the book is about mortality. I don’t know. You can read that book when or if it gets published. For now, I am trying to be content with sharing these stories online.
