remember what is important

This afternoon, as I continued with my sorting and clearing out, I found an unmarked carton in our den armoire. Treasures!  Greeting cards I had made about 25 years ago with favourite quotations printed on vellum and then affixed to Strathmore blank cards.  They were enhanced by my own stamp imprints.  I sold them for about $3.00 each.

Way before Etsy.

Several months ago, a  friend sent me one that he had saved all these years. I was delighted and saddened too, as I believed I had none left of my own.

Now the question is...what do I do with them?  Put them back in the carton? Address and mail them away? (Anybody have $3.00 for a vintage card?)

And, best of all, in this box of discovery, I found a manifesto to myself. Again, this would have been from decades past.

Now, all I need to do is remember.
