Paul's Garage month 8 8/06/10

They talk about ghost in the closet. How about ghost in the garage?
We all have a place where our boogyman waits. To scare us into the pit of memories. It has taken me this long to go into my scary place and try to sort things out.
Dragging things out unto the lawn as fast as possible as if it were a marathon. The only players me and my sanity.
Telling myself that it was just stuff, not memories.
I found out different, All the camping trips. All the painting projects. All the manly toys that I can't play with. I think that I may have sucked up an important O ring with the wet and dry vac.
All I can try to do is face each memory and eventually organize it. When I am done I can padlock it. Until a project forces me back. There are ghosts in the part of out mind we call memories. HH
