"What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories."
~ George Eliot ~
Things have memories, same as people.
They carry the energy of those who have used them and loved them.
Like the Velveteen Rabbit.
Like heirlooms passed down through generations.
Like my Dad's silver hairbrushes and his letter opener.
Like my husband's cowboy hat.
Like my mother's photo albums,
And my childrens' books.
I cherish the memory captured in household things.
