On Sunday March 29th I saw this tweet:

Life metaphor through artifacts.
The memories and voices of more than thirty seven years have arrived, been placed, and temporarily captured in this well shaped box. Words have been spoken by and to the inhabitants after being deposited and then removed from this container. The metaphor of give and take expressed in this artifact — history, memory, family.
I followed the link and found the image and this short story.
I am now thirty seven and this is my mailbox…
The beauty of this object and its stories made their way to me — from the current holder of the vessel who is destined to remember each time a new voice finds itself inside this container.
How sublime. A new drawing comes to mind.
