Here’s another consideration of your worldly possessions

If your house caught fire, what would you miss most?
Or, if you had time, what’s the first thing you would you save?

You know, that Dolley Madison thing of grabbing the portrait of Washington when the White House was burning. (OK, a slave actually deserves the credit, but back to the point.)

I have to admit that having so much of my work now backed up in the cloud, rather than on paper, greatly refocuses my response here.

My journals would be a big loss – there are too many to take them out all at once.

Other people would top the list, and after that, whatever’s closest at hand, probably starting with my laptop.

  1. My cats, but they are family, so they wouldn’t qualify as possessions. I would have to say my wallet because I don’t want to go through the trouble of having to get new id’s, cards … and after that, I guess it would have to be my meds. Those are the two things I put right away in the bathroom when when we have a tornado watch, which is not too often. I am not sure what I would really miss, other than my kitties.

  2. It would be my computer, because of the work that is stored on it. (Cloud services aren’t great in my neck of the tundra.) I have copes stored on hard drives, but to keep the latest copies, I would want that. The rest of my stuff can go. I’m fine with that.

  3. Laptop would definitely be a priority. I’m not a big fan of the cloud, though I do have off-site hard drives, but they don’t have the most current material.

    I’m not even sure it’s the data – getting used to a new computer always takes time.

    Might grab my guitar with the other hand – assuming the phone was already in my pocket.
