221/365 – Tape and Cardboard

I’ve been packing all day, going through the ghosts of my days here in Chicago.  The unsettled dust floating around me like ghostly memories.  It’s bitter sweet.  Finding those old keep sakes you forgot about.  Making the hard decisions about what to strike down and what to keep.

Letters.  Birthday cards.  Notes Megan left taped to the front door when I came home late from work telling me she loves me.  Old notebooks full of sketch comedy ideas.  Souvenirs that made me wonder why I really ever kept them.  Pictures.  Drawings.  Scribbles.  Clothing that I haven’t worn in ages.  An old striped shirt and white leather loafers I wore when I played Richard III.  A faded letter from a friend who sent a long lost book after she had it for 5 years.  An old VHS copy of *Batteries Not Included I received as a white elephant gift my first year in Chicago — complete with a fake postcard from Hume Cronyn.  A box of old props from shows long past — including two t-shirts with a “P” and a “T” painted on them with glitter paint for a song Pat and I sand about being brothers and being high on coke.  An old ashtray full of pins and buttons.  Conor Oberst’s first album; a cassette tape titled “Water.”

So much more to go through . . . .
