I have some things that have been sitting in drawers and closets for years and—while I don't need or use these things—I am pained to part with them. Some are inherited, some were formerly important, some never made sense, and a lot are scraps: of papers, events, good days, and really amazing trips. They're little material bits of my life that sit in drawers or the back of closets. And I've never figured out how to part with them.
