"If you could delete a memory, would you?"
I would never get rid of any of my memories. Actually that's my favorite book in the Vorkosigan series: Memory. It's intricate, fraught with massively complicated personal decisions, and makes you think if you'd give up your heart for your heart's desire. (Answer: No.)
I think about that book a lot lately, since it's deep on many levels. Where is worth and value, how do you learn to love yourself after making mistakes, how big a mistake can things be.
I've never made as monumental a screwup as Miles did, in that book, but I'd never want to lose my self to be something else. I'd be smaller.
Also I'm glad not to arrive at 30 in a box either, eh?
No. I'll keep my memories. The bad and the good. The good won't be as sweet if I lose the bad.
