    'Love and Shame and Love' by Peter Orner
    Lately, I've been trying to cure myself of my packrat tendencies and have been sorting through boxes of papers and mementos I've amassed over the years. In the box I most recently opened, I found an old Comiskey Park ticket stub from a Sox game I attended with a long-lost college pal and an overexposed Polaroid photograph of the West Rogers Park house where I grew up. I found playbills, letters, postcards, newspaper clippings about the 1983 mayoral election, a cocktail napkin from Myron & Phil's steakhouse, scraps of abandoned short stories, and a Michael Dukakis campaign button. Clearly, I never bothered to arrange the items in the boxes in any particular way. And yet, taken together, each of the small items manages to fuse with the others in my mind to become part of a cohesive, autobiographical narrative, an entire history told in fragments.
