        The title of this book resonates with me in so many ways. Donald Hall, if you don’t already know him, is a poet now living in CT who wrote about life in New England. He once found, at his grandparents farm, a jar marked; “string too short to be saved”- with bits of string in it. I originally wanted to call this section "Pieces of string too short to save", after the punch line of a Maine story about a notable packrat, who had a box in his attic with that label on it. The idea is that you don't throw things away just because there's no apparent use for them.
