Refuse Toleave-1

While stopping for a pastry (yet again!) at DeLessio on Market street I saw a kiosk advertising an art blog project called That Which I Refuse to Leave Behind by Kate Pocrass. It's part of an exhibition titled The Dust Never Settles which is an exhibition of visual art projects by San Francisco-based artists exploring the 1906 earthquake from a contemporary perspective. I was struck by the question the poster was asking: What one object would you choose to take with you, if you were faced with having to evacuate your home?

This is a tough question to answer, eh? Since we are sticking to things, I think irreplaceable photos and art are at the top of my list. But which ones? My wedding album, portraits of my family, paintings, oh I don't know!? Maybe my laptop? I think I would have to see how I was handling in the moment. Part of me thinks worrying about objects at all is wrong, surviving would be good enough.
