I emptied out a storage bin that had stuff in it for 14 years and found these old belly dancing valentines I made. I must have been about 40. So Happy Valentine's Day.

Yesterday I was sorting through boxes that had been in storage for over a decade and found belly dance photos from my past as well as some art I did. I hope to scan them soon and share them here, because it helps me to affirm that I was once a very active dancer. And some of them are for Valentine's Day so they are appropriate for this time of year. I'm glad I save things. People are so hell bent on order and neatness they are throwing their memories away. Trust me, as you get older, your memory is not all that dependable. Better to have a few photos, old business cards and some brochures to jog your gray matter. So when you clean house, keep a scrapbook or a memory box for those things that will be more precious as time goes on. And don't let anyone else talk you into throwing them away.
