Lately I have noticed that there are very few compact disks in our collection that I can listen to for very long.
The others have been worn into my memory and, like a fragrance finally lost through overexposure, no longer capture my attention.
Having displaced much of my short term memory for the tasks in front of me in the desert valley, I no longer sense their connection to feelings near and dear to my heart.
So to the shelf, for a well-deserved rest, to become dear once more.
