Time in a bottlePosted: December 10, 2012
It is a rainy, dreary, doldrums kind of day here in the Bogs. Rather than write about that and show you gray, dreary, dull images, I turned to the The Daily Post for some inspiration. The Daily Prompt for today is: Time Capsule.
The question is:
The year is drawing to a close. What would you put in a 2012 time capsule?
That’s easy. I’d put memories in my time capsule. Just in case a time comes that I’ll have forgotten how hot the summer was or how much fun it was to go to the aquarium with my granddaughters or the beauty of a sunrise from a small cabin in the wilderness of Cape Breton. I might forget the Cleveland Film Festival and the Color Run and all the bike rides and the train rides and the walks around the pond. Memories of foggy mornings, spider webs twinkling with dew, the fairy lights of frost and sunlight, Snow the white red-tailed hawk, painting the front of the house, growing vegetables in the garden, full moons, and crescent moons might all disappear. And if they do, I can open my time capsule and watch as they all come drifting out, reminders of days past.
What would you put in your time capsule?
Memory is the diary we all carry about with us.
