Remembering My Things
When MsTioga died in March, 2014, I had to take care of myself. Recovering from my heart operation was my highest priority. I was on my own during those weeks in the City of Bakersfield. Nobody to help or take care of me.
So, I made the decision to leave nearly everything inside MsTioga behind. But, I only left the possessions behind. Everything stayed with me. In my memory.
A few minutes ago, the memory of my wedding ring popped into my mind. The ring was worn down because I had worked in a machine shop while wearing it. I am able to see that worn ring. I see it in my mind's eye.
I see the letters sent to me over the years. They are in a shoe box. They are there in my mind for me to browse over.
I see my bible, with the important dates written in the back.
Nothing is lost.
