I have a challenge for you today. If you had to bury a time capsule that represented your life TODAY, what would you put in it. This means that 100 years from now, someone would open it and, from the 10 items you've included, they should be able to figure out what your life was like.
I've been thinking about what I would bury. Here are my 10 items, in no particular order:
- my laptop
- a picture of my family
- my business card
- my Kindle
- my Blackberry
- paint swatches, all in the color pink
- my Bible
- Fairytale Brownies
- iron pills
- a thumb drive with my photo albums on them
Looking at this, I wonder what conclusions one would draw from those items. Is this really who I am--a geek? Apink, iron deficient, Christian, gadget geek? Is that who I am? Does anything speak to the fact that I'm from Washington, DC? Would you gather that I live in South Florida? Would you know that I love baseball?
This is harder than I thought. Let me work on my list some more. In the meantime, what 10 things would represent your life today--not yesterday, not tomorrow, but who you are right now. Interesting stuff...
