So many new things are happening right now for me: new state, new house, new colleagues, new orchestra. And, on my relatively new blog, a blogfest. What is a blogfest? Well, that’s what I want to find out. It’s certainly new to me.
Bloggers participating in this blogfest are writing 500 words about the most cherished object in their possession, and visiting the other participants’ blogs. The Cherished Blogfest is hosted by Dan Antion, Damyanti Biswas, Paul Ruddock, Peter Nena, and Sharukh Bamboat.
I have had a lot of time to think about this question (and in a unique way) over the past several weeks, because I have been doing major decluttering, getting rid of possessions in preparation for a cross-country move.
I realized that it was going to be hard to pick just one thing, and that I cherished a lot of things. So it was important to me to find them good homes.
But now that we’re down to the end, to the empty house, what did I keep? What will I carry with me on the plane, being unwilling to be without it for the time it takes the moving van to drive from Boston to California?
Not surprisingly, the answer is, my viola! Since I have to say it in 500 words, I’ll write the official post next.
