It is painful to throw away old things, so instead I spent hours reorganizing old photographs, remembering the times they were taken, and wondering if anyone else's ever going to look at them, and how I wish I had not lost touch with so many in them.

The room is still a mess.

Religious old men spend their terrifyingly long days learning,
the atheist ones do TV and crossword puzzles.
It is nice to think that the former has more meaning than the latter --
sometimes there's no harm in self-delusion.
