Your house is on fire. You can take five things. What are they?
(for more inspiration visit www.theburninghouse.com)
1. Cloud painting I bought when I couldn't afford it
2. Mixed media collage over my mantle I found at a junk store in the Village
3. Landscape painting I knew was of the South when I saw it in New York (turned out to be a field in Decatur, Alabama)
4. Green lamp from Chelsea flea market
5. As many of my dining room chairs as I could carry
I would take my camera, laptop, cell phone, mom's pearl necklace and old family photos that I have not yet made copies of. Actually, I'd leave my phone behind so I could get the new iPhone.
1. the Bible I've carried (and written in) since 2006.
2. all my old journals.
3. a series of small, abstract paintings done by my uncle, a slightly famous Cuban painter.
4. my computer, because I am terrible at remembering to back-up.
5. my grandmother's quilt.
1. My first Bible.
2. My MacBook - it has ALL my work on it.
3. My Weblos hat - because randomly finding it at a thrift store after my mom gave it away deems it lucky.
4. My bike James - he's technically inanimate, or so I'm told.
5. My iPhone - I've had it for less than a month and I'm already addicte
kitchen table built my great grandfather - (would need help getting that out of the house)

As long as I could grab my phone, keys, and wallet, I'd be just fine. I don't really own anything all that great. Thanks for reminding me, Kathryn!
