As I start to go through more things I keep thinking back to the prompt asking what would you take if you had 30-minutes to get out of your house. Sometimes there is a fire coming your way, sometimes a hurricane, but no matter what is heading your way it can be helpful to think about what you would take with you.
When I looked at The Burning House I can feel the moment of deciding what is practical, valuable or sentimental as they suggest. he site shares “What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities.”
I looked around the inter-webs to see what else was out there for you to peruse and I found some that were interesting. A Collection a Day, Things Organized Neatly (I especially like the laurel of knives...), then there was Everyday Carry for some variety, and then What's In Your Bag on Flickr where people obviously are much neater than I am!
In case you were wondering what my short list is... and even if you weren't...
- Dogs (They are always at the top of the list, the rest may move around.)
- Photos / movies
- Cell phone (hopefully with a charger)
- Laptop (it has family history on it...)
- 3 paintings
- 1 small box of books
- Steubben saddle
- Jewelry box (sounds better than it is!)
Music for today is Johnny Cash - Ain't No Grave
