Why do I save everything?

When it means that, when I finally go on cleaning binges, I get to play the "how many of these people are still alive?" game with address books and old letters?

(Saved: the only letter I have from Layne. Reluctantly discarded: junkie poetry from Rae, letters from long-gone loony-bin friends.)

I have a tendency to carry my life on my back, like the junkyard Muppet from Labyrinth. I need to not. I need to not be drowning in pieces of who I was ten iterations ago.

I've got a very full trash bag right now, in addition to the one I filled from my office yesterday. My closet is up next, but not today.
