So I've been getting rid of a lot of things that I've been lugging around with me for over a decade from my place in Fairport Harbor, Ohio, to the Gararge at my mother's house, to a temporary home in a Medford MA Basement, and then a Storage Unit. What finally motivated me to do this was the realization that most of this stuff has lived in these boxes for nearly ten years. Why do I need to be paying eighty dollars a month to hold on to this stuff? Clearly, I don't. So when I moved to my current Apartment in Somerville, every weekend I started bringing as much from the unit as would fit in my room. The next couple of days I'd go through the boxes, and unless the item passed a fairly high bar, it would get added to the pile to be disposed of, or recycled, or donated as the case may be. Tuesday night would see all those items taken out to the curb, and I'd be that much closer to... well, that's the question, isn't it? It feels like I'm finally finishing something. Finally letting go of the past and living in the present. It's probably long past time.

Anyway, I've finally gotten down to my old Multi-Disc CD changer. I plugged it in to see if it even still worked, and started shuffling some of my old CD's. That was around 6:30 pm. It's almost Midnight now.

I think I'm keeping the CD's.

And the changer?

Ah yes. The cases and inserts for the CD's are long gone, so they have no other place to live. It's my 30lb iPod, LOL.

We have lots of empty CD cases, if you want some.

Thank you, but I think I'll keep everything as it is for the moment. If I ever decide to get rid of the changer I'll probably get a CD binder for the discs.
