This is a recurring discussion. For some four decades. I have always maintained that there is a time to hold tight and a time to dispose. Just don't push my timelines.

I have a friend who is a few years older but very vital. For years he's been going to library sales and the few remaining record stores and other places and collecting books, recordings, magazines, etc. For a time he was very deep on Algonquin Table folks, but he has expanded. He now has four or five storage lockers he visits periodically to deposit new finds and look through old ones. God knows what his heirs will do with it all, but the collecting and reading and listening keeps him going.
Then that happened.

One of my uncles died at age 30 from AIDS. My father ended up disposing of his personal effects, and let's just say there were many things that a 42-year-old straight man had never encountered.

Brian Wilson, when he recorded those poignant old-man vocals on Smile 14 years ago, was the age that i am now!
