Every person hides away their precious things in treasure boxes. A treasure box could be a bag, a wooden box or even a locked drawer that holds memorabilia; things that trigger memories, belonging, they are things we cherish.
In my grandmother’s house, days before it was to be demolished, I found an old brown leather suitcase belonging to my uncle, and instantly I knew it contained exciting things waiting to be discovered. I found clues to the mystery of who my uncle was as a young man, in love, with his whole life before him. Rediscovering that my uncle had an artistic soul brought back beautiful memories during the midst of a heart-aching event.
My uncle kept this suitcase for years even after he had moved out, and although it was found by another person it was still precious. A question is provoked here: Can you let go of your treasure box; yet still treasure its contents?
