Status: waiting for June
If you only had 60 seconds to choose something from your home, what would it be?
I know what I would take—my grandchildren. If they were not at my home, I would make sure the dog and the cats were safe. After that, I would go for the pictures, the old family albums.
What would you take? A piece of heirloom jewelry, which might bring back memories of other times and precious family memories? Perhaps you would take the computer since many family portraits and documents are stored there. As a writer perhaps an unfinished and unpublished book would be in the hard drive.
This thought came from a movie I watched the other night and it made me think. We hear about wild fires and people fleeing from their homes sometimes with little more than 60 seconds to get out.
Sometimes we see their cars filled with important items from their homes.
What a person would take tells a story all its own. It speaks to the kind of person he/she is and the values they hold.
So let us take a look at some of the genres.
Romance: A love letter, a piece of jewelry, a picture…
Mystery: A little black book, a satchel of evidence, if you were Sherlock Holmes, your pipe…
Science Fiction: A PDA, a teleporting machine, a time travel machine…
Historical: A family bible, a weapon, a family heirloom…
