365 Project - Day 255 - "Traveling"
September 12, 2010 - "Traveling"
I love old suitcases.
I don't know why... maybe it's the story that clings to them... the knowledge of far-off places... the dreams they've carried.
Maybe it's some sort of nostalgic idea of traveling... of life On the Road.
I don't know. I just love old suitcases.
These two are gems that I found yesterday at a tag sale for $5 each.
One, a simple brown case with a monogram M.E.R. under the handle (which Holly says is very cool, because "Mer" is "Ocean" in French).
The other, a large black case... very reminiscent of George Bailey's boat of a travel case given to him by Mr. Gower in "It's A Wonderful Life".
Two old suitcase...
And a sudden desire to hit the road, heading for someplace I've never been before.
Life is good!
