8: The Treasured Note/Photo
Safe in an inner sanctuary of your wallet. Safe in a purse in your bag. Not looked at so often, but it's there. A funny little note from your son or daughter when they were just age four. A short-pretty well her last-shopping list from your mother. A receipt from that little coffee shop; at the time you didn't know where it would lead but you did know you didn't want it to end.
In a world where we sometimes have so many digital memories and connections we turn around and realise we have none that are real, save a note or photo for the rainy days, for staying grounded when all around is going crazy, for realising what is truly important.
