I went for a little visit over at http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2011/12/make-a-time-capsule/. And since then, Joy’s idea of creating a time capsule has been popcorning around in my head.
Popcorning, careening, burbling and marinading
Since I have barely been able to stifle my creative self’s unmitigated joy and enthusiasm for this project, it looks highly possible that I will be fashioning a time capsule of my very own.
I love the idea of intentionally placing mementos and reminders of my life today into a receptacle that will not be opened or peeked at for seven whole years. In our short human lifespan, a lot of life and living is crammed into seven years. A whole of experiences, ups and downs, ins and outs, progress toward goals, shape shifting and imagined dreams.
As well as a whole lot of forgetting of daily living, goals identified that prove to be so fleeting one cannot recall them seven years in the future. Yes, the body of what I remember is not as large as what I have forgotten in my conscious mind.
What a great project idea and the timing is impeccable. Don’t you think?
Let’s do it!
Let’s make our own time capsules!
Thank you, Joy, for the suggestion ~
