I have had the name Allenger since 1994. I love that name. Its mine and Elizabeth's - I don't know why I am so attached. I just am. So, when I started collecting the letter 'A', it felt like an identity issue. Well.... now that three "E's" live in this house, its time for the "A's" to go. But I have been reluctant - until the cats helped me out with that step of letting go. Two of my favorite A's were broken into pieces by falling from the mantle onto the hardwood floors. It almost feels cathartic, to let go of that past feeling of attachment. Instead, I am now attached to the love of my life and the life that we have together.
