Last night I dreamt that the area in which we live was slowly flooding, reminiscent of the Red River Flood in the prairies the year we moved away from Manitoba. We had 15 minutes to pack what was really important to us (besides each other and pets) and when I awoke this morning I found it interesting to think about what I had selected in my dream - my jeans, sweaters & cowboy boots, a beloved painting from the 'Romance Dining' series by Grant Leier, a book titled 'Do What You Are' because I have my entire family's personality types along with notes written inside it, my Word-of-the-Year necklace and our photo album.
This morning I asked each of my daughters what they would select - my youngest chose a collector doll, Violet, along with some dresses that her grandmother made, her 'Wolfie' stuffed animal whom she's had since she was a little girl and an out of print book that was a gift from one of her elementary school teachers...my eldest said besides her favorite clothes she would grab her USB as all her photos, stories and poems are on it.
What would you choose?
