To go with the new couch Herr Doktor (who has been excitedly guest blogging for Faustus) cleaned a closet today, and into the night.
This was the closet with the interesting stuff. The photo trunk. The scrap-book trunk. Presents bought but never given.
Evidence of lives long gone. My lives. The lives of friends and family. Papers from birthdays and papers with obituaries.
Circus capes, revolutionary war jackets, ceremonial swords, saxophones, trumpets, judo gis, dry suits, bells, a big box of audio cassettes, extra wine glasses, drums, ribbons, bows and wrapping paper.
Here’s to the ghosts!
