YEAREND RAMBLE – pt 3 December 31, 2010

 

Read pt 1 here

 

Read pt 2 here

 

 

Project Archive is basically finished.

 


Buh-bye

 

 

Tossed a crapload of shit. Or a shitload of crap. By “tossed” I mean threw away the nonpersonal papers, and moved anything with identifying info into the shredding bin, which is heavier than ever. Anyway everything fits in one box now.

 


Mission semi-accomplished

 

I am going to rest on my laurels. Well, pillows actually, crack open the SOA dvd’s and enjoy. Then tomorrow I’ll start on the next projects.

Just finished going through one archive box. Apparently I had forgotten that I already purged a bunch of stuff from the dead relatives box. The only things left in there were some pictures, my dad’s various certificates (GED, business school, volunteer probation counselor, postal service retirement, and certificate from Bush, Sr. acknowledging my dad’s service in the Army that we got at his death), as well as the flag from his coffin.

 


I know, I know – I need to get a case for the flag

 

The certs don’t really serve a purpose for me and he’s been gone almost 22 years but it doesn’t feel right to throw them out. It’s just … ink and embossed seals on paper, but they carry a weight. Not a substantial physical one, but one of accomplishment and a sense of attachment to my past. I am here partially because of the person that achieved these things.

 

So, anyway – on to the 2nd box. Apparently the bulk of the crap archived is my own stuff. That is a little trickier to deal with. I know you’re supposed to keep old tax records and bank statements and such for a certain period of time but jeez… I just wanna toss the crap. But it can’t even be that simple. It should be shredded. Hence the big green storage bin in the pic. Yes -all of that is crap to be shredded.

 

Hmmm –

IT IS THE SOLDIER October 18, 2010

 

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

 

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

 

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

 

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

 

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

 

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

 

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
