never say goodbye.........


i have come to the conclusion that i have more bon jovi memorabilia than bon jovi!! "back in the day" i was in all the fan clubs (helped run a few of them!) and not only did i collect things myself, but i had others send me things as well. in doing the big "purge" this week.....i decided to weed thru all that stuff and try to organize it. i've been working on it for hours and hours and i'm *still* not done!! i could open my own bon jovi store!!!!!!! LOL!! looking at all the stuff has really been bringing back some wonderful memories, but it also made me realize that i spent an awful lot of time and energy on this band. was it really worth it? thier music was a GOD-send to me there for awhile, and i met some AMAZING friends as a result of being in that fan community. (also met some nut jobs, but i digress....) still.........i think of all the time and money i might have wasted when i could have been doing something "worthwhile." ah well.....i wouldn't take those days back for anything, and if i could do them over, i have a feeling that i would do them just the same. now, tho, i have to wonder if i should really hold on to all of this stuff, or maybe let some of it go. i wonder what old tour books and tshirts sell for on ebay????

the issue is what this all means to you...what we do in life is always suspect in aftersight...but what we do...we do for a reason...and if this brought some joy into your life...then it was worth it!
