The Ultimate Suitcase

An old friend of mine is selling her house and moving. It will be to a different state, a different town, a different house and it makes her sad to leave the place where so many dear memories were made. As we were talking, I told her that the house is just a house. That she takes her whole life with her wherever she goes.
I may photograph everything. And paint landscapes on vacation. But it is in my mind where I keep everything I need to be me.
Remember that you are the ultimate suitcase - packed with stories, recipes and your own moments of delight.

Now I know that it's THE day down here but you are probably still sleeping so while you're dreaming, I'm sending you sweet dreams and lovely birthday wishes.
