Lost my mobile phone (again) today. Feeling desolate and inconsolable.
What did I lose, apart from the money value of the phone...hmm..
Almost every piece of information can somehow be retrieved or stutteringly restored.
Except for the sms-es of someone who is not an active part of my daily life anymore. Looking at these sms-es were my way of injecting that person's memories (and my love for her) into my constant mental system. Even though it may not exist anymore (in the other person's heart), to see the past intensity of love (for me) that was expressed in words still used to make me feel loved.
Tonight, I stand deprived. Of even those keepsake memories, that I so dearly hung on to for several years.
