Your own personal Time Machine
Imagine for a moment stepping through a door, back in time to the dark days of WWII. What would you see if you could travel in that time machine? How many little things would be the same and how many would have changed?
Recently a woman who owned a flat near the Trinité Church in Paris died, at the age of 91. She had left it just before WWII, never to return!
When experts were asked to track down her possessions they discovered what was like stumbling into the castle of Sleeping Beauty, where time had stood still. And time had ceased to continue in this dust and cob web filled home until just recently.
What’s in Your Parisian Time Machine Flat?
We don’t often think about the stories that can be told from the things of our life. We take them for granted because they’re always around us but if we were to step away for, say 70 years, what would we think of those items then? What memories would they conjur up for us?
You may not be able to uncover a cache of storytelling treasures like this one, Parisian Flat but tucked away in boxes, is your brick-a brac, that tell stories from you life and times and even if you don’t have the items now. What do you remember from then, many years ago.
- What were the toys you had as a child?
- What clothes did you wear?
- What were the family things that made your life functional?
All these things are now only seen in a museums or antique stores but what if you had your own Parisian Flat to journey back in time. What things would you rediscover that prompt you into the stories of your life?
