  1. Great prompt. This made me think of my time as an early intervention speech therapist. I traveled about the county providing services to handicapped babies and their families in their homes. In the 80s and 90s, my caseload was filled with babies disabled from crack-cocaine and the AIDS virus.

  3. Great prompt! This made me think of staying home with my kids after I got laid off. They were 4&5 at the time and we spent 8 fantastic months playing! This was hard for me because I’m more conscious of feeling doing than things so I wanted to write “reading” instead of “books” but it’s good to stretch a little!

  6. My first time here and here are my objects. Funny how certain things can be such intimate reflections of your life. Mine relates to travelling in Scotland in 2016. A long journey but one filled with anticipation and a heart that got lighter with the miles:

    Weathered journal
    BIC pen
    Adjustable walking stick
    Laptop computer
    Smiles of serenity
    Favourite old jumper
    Scent bottle, redolent of old roses
    Writing paper
    Favourite music
