Remember this prompt, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind
Yesterday the heavens opened and since then it’s raining heavy non stop. I’m more worried about a flood than a fire. My neighbourhood is close to the river but in a high terrain. We have even a public lift to access to the lowest part of the city, where the river Arga flows. I have good friends who live in a neighbourhood down, close to the riverbank. And the forecast says there will be snow at least till Thursday. They have built this year new walls to contain the waters. So we will see if this time are enough to avoid the floods.
Back to the hypothetical fire. I would go back and try to recover all that reminds me of my father. I think I rescued first time his diaries and some pictures. Second time I rescued my computer where I have his books and more pictures, but there are other things in the house: his pen, his typewriter, his hat, the picture of Our Lady of the Rock of Kotor Bay he had in his desk, letters, some paintings… I really don’t need things to remember him, so vivid he remains in my memory and my heart, but I love to have them around.
