here it is! the last of three posts on personal belongings that had been stored away in portugal, and that i brought home from my visit last month. i posted about stuff here and here, while scrutinizing motives to why we hold on to certain things, and not everything made it back on this trip… still, most of the, for whatever reason, important things are here:
when i saw this my body and mind paused for a split second: my first tutu from my very first ballet recital and i was now passing it down to my 3 year old, fascinated by tutus
my small pin collection
my devil wig… thought it would come in handy for the holiday
a couple of my BOOKS!!! one was a school book from when i was living in the US as a kid and the other from university
as the tutu was passed onto big e so was this piggy bank, to baby e; a gift from one of my closest friends at the age of 12
a voodoo kit, of course, from a (business) visit to new orleans; a truly mystical place!
happy holiday, everyone!
