We were introduced to objects that spoke to and represented entire years, even decades, of people’s lives–from journals to jewelry, figurines to Fabio.
We heard about a squirrel named Squeaky, the gift of two gratitude journals, a locket from the 1800s, a guide to the world’s great aphorists, a long-term love of everything Disney, and many more.
Then, Patricia gave a mini-lesson on seeing. The group learned that seeing takes time and reflected on how seldom people slow down to see the world. Participants took a few minutes to really look at their treasured possessions and saw some things for the very first time. Afterward, everyone wrote about what they noticed, and some shared touching stories with the group.
