This is possibly the best task I've come across yet.
It really hits home with me.
Definitely have to complete this one sometime soon.

Me too- but first I have to built an "altar of almighty adulthood" suitable enough for this task~ that will take some time....

Often in my youth my family would go out and peruse the neighborhood for garage sales. My mother found obscure works of art, my father, gold clubs, and I often returned with a small book or toy. When my step mother took me, though, it was all about porcelain figures. She must have had a million cats and dogs in various poses weighing down her mantle place, perching on her chairs, and filling her windowsills. This love for animals made from fire-hardened dirt was pressed upon me as a sort of bonding ritual. It disgusted me.

Over the years I "lost" most of the mementos of those dreary Saturdays, the only known survivor a small black pepper shaker in the form of a cat. It cherished a small spot on my shelf, cozily residing next to my KGB medal and a scorpion encased in amber. While lacking inspiration I would often look over this curio shelf, filled with odds and ends from across the globe. The cat constantly failed to inspire me until today.

I rushed to the garage, grabbed the largest hammer I could find, and obliterated the poor porcelain cat. There was little ceremony or ritual to the act, just the smashing of a small thing I cared little about. Its remains joined several other things in what I have decided to affectionately call "The Lava Bucket".

Destroy a piece of my past? to do that I would have to destroy memories. Unfortunately, I can't mess with my brain or those of others, so I decided the best way to do this was to destroy things that brought memories.

Keep Marching On by Llama Chameleon May 5th, 2009 1:00 AM

I think everybody is haunted by the first person who they loved and lost. For me, that person was my friend Chris. He committed suicide when I was 17, and I've never quite been able to let it go. It was one of those super intense relationships tha...

I thought I would be the last person on Earth to do this task. I am deathly afraid of forgetting. I journal compulsively. I carry a small notebook in my purse in which I periodically scribble phrases or images or conversations that I Don't Want to F...

Keep Marching On by Markov Walker January 6th, 2010 8:49 PM

I made a Markovian walk through my day. That is, I took a random path through the locales I intended to visit, and the process I used to determine that path will had the Markov property. A stochastic process has the Markov property if the next value ...

The hot sun was abruptly covered by clouds; rain pounded down upon us without warning. Something clicked in my brain, and I ran inside. I've been hanging on to old art for years, none of which I'm excited by any longer. Most of it is representatio...
