  1. That’s an interesting question. The things I would have erased when I was younger or when I was ( or am) going through them have given me lots of ideas and grist to work with later, so I guess I can’t say that I’d erase the worst of what happened…maybe sad stuff like my pets getting run over by cars was something I could do without. Not trivial at the time!

  2. Wow!!!!!!!!!!
