How many memories should we save?

Do you care about your baby pictures? Not those of your kids, they bring back memories.

But what does that photo taken of you when YOU were 1 year old say? You’re a lot older now. Why save it? Seems like it should be valuable. TO WHO?

Do I want to see a picture of Abe Lincoln when he was one year old? No.

This is what’s hard about saving memories. You have so many, what’s worth saving, who cares?  It is interesting if it shows other things, the surroundings. Sitting on a tricycle, in front of the old Ford says something. But a studio shot when you were one year old. What does it say?

Should we throw it out?
