The Dumpster

That which you create in beauty and goodness and truth lives on for all time to come. Don’t spend your life accumulating material objects that will only turn to dust and ashes. — Denis Waitley

Inspiration of the Day:
“‘We can’t use these. They look like heirlooms!’ Gina, a guest at my holiday gathering, holds up one of the elaborately embroidered napkins from the buffet table. ‘Where’d you get them?’ ‘Out of a dumpster. The tablecloth and those candleholders were in there, too.’ ‘You can’t be serious! Why would they be in a dumpster?’ The shock in her voice carried across the room, and others looked up. It’s common that women ask where something came from, especially if it’s an attractive article of clothing or new addition to the house. But to name a dumpster as the source of anything, especially an object of beauty, is completely unexpected. My explanation created an atmosphere of mystery.” What follows is a touching true story by author Meredith Sabini on what gives objects value.

Be The Change:
Take a look around at the things in your living space. Do some seem imbued with memories, while others don’t?
