Everything I Need in Front of Me

What would it be like
To not be weighed down
With the detritus and memories
Of decades and generations ?
Hats and shoes and awards
Artwork and photos and earrings
Scarves and letters and books?
What if I just traveled like a turtle
With my home on my back
And everything I needed
In front of me?
-Karen Molenaar Terrell

  1. My husband of 51 years passed on June 9th. I have been looking at all my “stuff” and feeling so overwhelmed. So much that I though was so needed, isn’t.
    Hard way to realize/remember what really is important.
