I pulled out all of the small PostIt tabs from the library books, and really felt disappointed doing so. This was the end. I decided to save them and shove them into my Japan envelope of paper treasures (maps, tickets, etc.)
I have one of these envelopes for each time I went overseas. There is nothing really special about the receipts and other trash, but I am beginning to believe in the magical imagination of ‘you never know what you’ll find someday’.
