THE BOX

Don’t have an attic, but I do have a box
full of memories
containing letters, photos, significant objects
Actually I have several photo boxes.
(Mundane Monday)

 

 

 

In Nice (France; pronunciation: Niece)
walking on our way to the Chagall museum. Not knowing terror would haunt this city later, as well as others in the last weeks. My thoughts are with the ones mourning their loved ones in Europe and the Middle East.

Most of the doors on this location – except for two – are not seen except for the balconies:)
The Chagall is a must-see. Some huge paintings, not seen in the USA
(Thurs. Doors, Fences)

Downtown in an Italian town, the reflection of the car window (below) caught my attention. Technically two of these cars could pass each other! But one night we thought to cut short our drive, but spent an hour on this road, just to avoid hitting people! Never again:)
See all the bikes on the left? A better transportation in these narrow old streets!
(Tue. Treasure, ABC Wed, Friday Hunt)

Mining marble in Carrera, one of the early sites of the marble, made into the sculptures of the Roman (Italian) artists you know from Da Vinci, etc. From far it looked like snow on the mountains!

My favorite April view.

There was one day where the dark set in at three o’clock in the afternoon, when the man on the middle cross died. Not because he was guilty of a crime, but he died for our crimes. It was a dark, but also a Good Friday.
That we may never forget his sacrifice.

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY

    Love the photo of Nice – I think I walked right past that fence! And I also remember those narrow streets in Italy, especially in Orvieto, Siena, Lucca, and in Sicily in Siracusa.

  18. Your memory box is pretty, Jesh. I have quite a large one under my bed full of mementos, my photographs are in another huge box. I suppose after having five children I’m bound to have a lot of both. 🙂

      Another person wondered if these photo boxes will still remain in a digital age – I think so, since people need tangible reminders of their memories:) The same with books – I love certain books – I want to touch the pages. I can’t see myself doing that with a screen:)

      1. So true, Jesh. You can’t beat a ‘hand’s-on’ experience. I have certain printed books I couldn’t part with, I even love the smell of them.

    Hard to imagine two cars passing each other in that narrow alley. A white-knuckle ride! My other thought is of your shoe box of old photos and memories. Wonder if those will become a thing of the past as kids grow up in an all digital world?

    Excellent post! I’d love to go to Nice someday!

    “Am having trouble figuring it out” – My photo is a reflection of the ceiling and walls of a church.
    Everything you see in the picture is a reflection. It was all reflected in a polished marble column. The dark blurry part at the bottom of the photo is my camera and my hand which were to close be in focus. Hope this helps. 🙂
