“do you keep it on your wall? pasted up, next to all the other things that you can't bear to throw away? and when you move, do you save all the things, and then put them back up and then sigh and feel at home? or do you just start over again? some people think there's a part of someone left over, in each thing they have touched and that part of them like, travels along with the thing. i don't think that. except for when i lost my ring, which used to be my grandmothers' ring and it was easier to think of it being destroyed rather than someone else wearing it, because my grandmother was definitely on that ring.”
