What Would You Take?

I love the beach and the beach loves me back.

~~~~~~~~~~

I am sitting here watching one of my favorite movies, "Leap Year", and the most interesting question was just asked of the main heroine by the hero, "If your apartment were on fire, your beautiful apartment, what would you take?" 

"What?" she asked.

"If your house was on fire and you had sixty seconds, what would you take?" he repeated, an intent look on his face.

What would I take? 

My photos. I would gather as many of my photos and photo albums as I could and run.

Run fast.

My photos are my memories. The story of our life together. My throat gets tight just thinking about that kind of loss. (Well, except for people. But I am not including my family in this question. I think he was referring to inanimate objects - material goods.)

What would you take?
