To my U.S. American friends, readers and lurkers Happy Thanksgiving. To everyone–Happy TMI Tuesday.
This week’s TMI Tuesday was derived from a book called Taking Things Seriously. Read on, you’ll get the drift.
Taking Things Seriously
“Step into any living room, office, studio or den of just about any engaged, imaginative, passionate person and you will find an item that, although it may not appear particularly valuable, is reverentially displayed as though it were a precious and irreplaceable artifact.”
For example: scraps of movie posters scavenged from the streets of NYC by ‘Low Life’ author Luc Sante. A WWI prison camp hunk of bread forced upon photographer Rosamond Purcell by an elderly neighbor…you get the idea.
1. Think about your environments–home, office, vehicle, what sort of inanimate objects hold special meaning and significance for you. List/name the objects, tell us why they hold a special place. Share some photos if you dare.
2. Are any of your treasured items worth a lot of money?
3. Would you ever part with that item? If yes, under what circumstances.
4. What is the oddest or strangest item that you covet and proudly display?
