This will be happening for me very soon, literally. I've sold my apartment and am busy clearing out all my stuff, packing away boxes of memories. I realise that this place has so many memories for me.
Packing makes me a little sad, a little melancholy. It makes me want to hold on to the place for a while longer. Its a little sad to let go of the place, finally. It is as if holding on to the place gives me a firmer grip on the memories there.
Thats silly because memories will always be with me in my mind and in my heart. My memories do not require a physical place or presence. I do not need to hang on to the physical place to keep my memories intact.
Since I am feeling a little melancholy, it is timely to quote some memory quotes.
It's surprising how much memory is built around things unnoticed at the time. ~ Barbara Kingsolver
Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. ~ Cathy Allen
This post is to remind me to continue to make new sweet memories to be cherised in years to come.
