This morning's shodo's class was cancelled and I had a rainy three hours to spend as I wished. Not wanting to be over-productive, I decided to go through my bag of letters, maps, and memorabilia with the plan to update my refrigerator. I put on Tom Waits's Rain Dogs to compliment the rain, and sifted through memories, deciding what should stick. So much of moving forward is thinking about what memories I continue to carry. Sometimes it's good to have an hour to reflect and sort, to pick what stays and to put others in a box, out of the spotlight for the time being. What will be on my next refrigerator?
