“At some point, your memories, your stories, your adventures, will be the only things you'll have left.”-Chuck Palahniuk
I wear these things as reminders of all of you.
This bracelet, this ring, this wrist band, this necklace.
Each object, whenever I choose to wear it, reminds me of one of you. For me, jewelry isn't about adding to an outfit, so much as taking those whom I love along with me wherever I go.
Memories are attached to objects; people are attached to memories.
Each piece brings back recollections of when they were received. Circumstances. Locations. Company.
Maybe I am entirely too sentimental.
|These happened to be what I was wearing while typing this, |
so I thought I might as well capture the moment...
