observations on the ephemera of life
Abandoned in a jacket pocket, in the bottom of a purse, in a desk drawer - a ticket boldly demanding: KEEP THIS TICKET. The event from which this ticket came is long forgotten, and the ticket does not enlighten. Keep this ticket. Oh, the quandary. To KEEP THIS TICKET or to toss it. What if it is a winning ticket? I wonder what I won? Has the correct ticket been drawn? Will my phone ring and a stranger tell me how lucky I am? Will I need this ticket to claim my prize? Has it expired? Was it my ticket to enter a venue? Did I? Did I enjoy it? Do I want a refund? I can't claim a refund without this ticket, can I? I'd better keep this ticket.
