If your house was burning, what would you bring with you?
According to http://theburninghouse.com/
“It’s a philosophical conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. You’re forced to prioritize and boil down a life of accrued possessions into what you can carry out with you. What you would bring reflects your interests, background and priorities. People’s stage in life also dictates their selection. Think of it as a full interview condensed into one question.”
In addition to a photograph you must also write a list of your items.
- •Old family album
- •My favourite movie “La lista de Schindler”.
- •Calendar month and year of my birth.
- •Old photographs.
- •Red scrunchie
- •Silver pendant
- •News of a newspaper
