I have this beautiful piece of clothing I wore exactly once and something terrible happened during it. Then I held onto the piece for 7-nigh-8 years. It's so beautiful - but I can't ever wear it again without thinking about that night.

I want to do something symbolic to get rid of it. It doesn't feel right to give it away like it means nothing. I loved it, and it was awful.

Anybody know a shaman?

Cut it into teeny tiny squares, blend it to a pulp with some water, make the pulp into paper, bind it into a book, write down some feelings on it, burn the book, gather the ashes, bathe in the ashes, roll yourself on a sheet of butcher paper, bind THAT into a book, put it on a bookshelf, burn the house down, sleep in the ashes, become the ashes.

Or, at least, that's one option.

Exorcisms are expensive. Fireworks are cheap. The Fourth of July is right around the corner. Just saying . . .

Turn it around.

There is a whole subculture of brides who "Trash The Dress" in epic photoshoots that wind up being amazing images, that totally ruin the wedding dress. Examples: http://delsolphotography.com/category/trash-the-dress/

Mercury is a pretty metal. It's also highly poisonous, with the effects unseen before it's too late. Don't hold on to it.

The best way to get rid of poison is to put it away where it can't find you.
