The Things We Carry - 001

So many things travel with us throughout out lives.

Not just the tangible; there are ideas, dreams, fears and thoughts. There are beliefs and prejudices, stubborn falsehoods and wonder tales.

All of these make up who we are, have a hand in steering us.

This is a topic I've touched upon briefly, several years ago when first we moved from Atlanta to Savannah. It started with a box of china and has now extended past the items on my shelves and burrowed deep into the existential.

I want to explore these "things", unearth them, turn them about in the daylight. Like an archaeologist I need to examine the good, the bad, the baffling; I want to take  microscope to the macrocosm that surrounds me.

Every person is filled with stories, carry things with them from long past and recent memory. It's these things, these pieces that shape us.

I find that utterly fascinating.

  1. Most people don't want to examine those things. They don't mean we are bad or broken, they are just part of who we are.

    1. This is so true. It's sometimes hard to look at where we come from but it's not always bad. I love going through the items that I have inherited from my parents and grandparents, tangible things as well as personality quirks. Baggage can be hard to go through but it helps to clean out the attic every now and then. The key is to let go of regret, find a lesson, and move on.
