dead bird-2

In these last weeks before leaving this home that has been so good to us, I find myself pausing. I reflect on objects we have collected through the years knowing that they will be tucked away in storage for months only to be placed somewhere else. I remember when I bought them and with whom and reconnect with why it is a treasure to me. I think of my grandmother and the many moments we had in this house honoring her and recall how she lived to the end surrounded by the things she loved. I hope the same will be true for me. That I will always remember that afternoon with DC at Grange Hall when we found this reminder that life is short and to avoid chasing your reflection.
