Incurable Romantic

I’m an atheist, so it’s not as though I believe in reincarnation or an afterlife with loved ones looking down at you. I do believe in the first law of thermodynamics but don’t put a personal spin on it. So what I do, I do because that’s who I am not because I expect some spectral gratitude. After 8 years, I started to look at his cologne bottles sitting in the bathroom and wondering why I could not bring myself to throw them out. Then synchronicity struck: I saw a notice for a new gallery dedicated to mementos of lost love and did not hesitate to offer them, though I was stunned they immediately accepted. I boxed them up and sent them off the next day. Today they reside in the Museum of Broken Relationships, my way of finally letting go while paying tribute to the man I loved. I hope the exhibit brings a fraction of the comfort and closure to others as this act did for me.
