Records are

little pieces of time

that are stored to

preserve the beauty

of the past.




They all mean

the same thing.

I am here.

And here,

I will remain.

Snatched from their

original home

and uprooted

to location after location.

We all want to see

the beauty and the struggles

of the past.

No matter what happens,

these records, big or small,

are proof

that there was

once happiness.

There was once hope.

There was once a silver star

in a dark night’s sky.
