Visiting my parents often involves awkward discussions. My mom, bless her morbid heart, wants me to go through their house and choose what I want after she and my dad die. I don’t want to think of this possibility, but of course I do want to ease her mind. How to select though? Which vase holds her love of flowers and butterflies? Which glass spills her laugh? What lamp lights up a room like my dad’s jokes? What furniture feels like a hug? What will keep them here in this world with me?
For your prompt, think what furniture or items hold pieces of yourself that you want your loved ones to hold, that you want to survive beyond you? What should home your memory?
