never ever

Yeah, here it is not even a week after I said I was calling it quits for this blog and now comes this entry. After this, that's it, or so I say.

I was debating about whether to leave all the old posts or delete them. Tonight I went back and read my first five entries, written in June 2008. They brought back too many memories for me to delete. As I get older, what I thought was burned into my brain tends to escape through the holes in my head so it is good to keep the memories in writing for posterity.

And in particular, something I wrote in my second entry hit me. I mentioned how I used to keep a journal but one impulsive day I picked up all five volumes and threw them away, much to my regret years hence. I offered this advice to my readers, and I guess I should heed it myself:

Never get rid of pictures, writings, etc., because one day you'll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life. You have to preserve your Casablancas.

You never know what might be of significance to future generations, even if you didn't think it was important to you today.
