Tin Box Archives Series

Tantalising snippets of other lives. Glimpsed amongst the ephemera from my tin box archives.

Grandmothers recipe book, well loved postcards with messages of hope and love and wishes. Letters, photographs, unfinished embroideries, receipts, and newspaper clippings - all hint at other moments in time.  Small forgotten moments and finished days lived ago furnish our minds eye.

Keep our awareness on the second by second progression of our own lives. Notations and marks that we make on our own progressive landscape provide evidence of our journey. By remembering others we focus on now. Hoard the clues that we live. Leave a trail.
