sentimentality

It's becoming obvious I'm also terribly sentimental about my previous g/f's things. Our tickets to the now-demolished Toreo de Tijuana, a plastic dragon she got in Chinatown on a whim to play tourist in the city where she was born, a funky ceramic box. My own things I have much less trouble trashing, but hers are difficult. These things however briefly brought amusement or a light in her eye.

It's coming up on 11 months and even though I'm at the beginning of a new love, the past has undeniably shaped my life significantly.

I can certainly remember our lives together without these trinkets, but without them would I take the time to remember? Without them, would the good times be overshadowed by the bad ones?
