Burning House

If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.Burning House Project

The image above was my entry for the Burning House Project. I thought about what I would submit as my entry. If my house was on fire the first thing I would do is secure my family. I would get my wife, my son and my daughter. That’s it. I wouldn’t re-enter the house for anything else. But then my thoughts drifted to more practical things and I realized the question is “what would you take with you?”, not “who”.

Truth be told, I don’t really need these devices, credit cards or ID. We live a mostly digital life. Our family photos, videos, contacts, etc. are all backed up and store inline. All I really need to restore our life is access to a computer. But having these things — drivers license, health insurance card, credit cards — makes life a lot simpler.
