Where, do you think, this suitcase, has been? What would it look like smell like feel like if you opened it up? What do you think is inside?

There's a story there, I just know it. Thanks, MJ, for the provocative pic.

  1. Old suitcases have so much character, don't you think? I'll bet there are hundreds of stories in there. Fun ...


  2. I love it....let's could have taken a number of trips...but I am sure it passed through Ellis Island at least once...maybe it traveled with a young woman coming to America from England to meet her sweetheart...or maybe a young gentleman from Italy coming to America to make his fortune in the Gold are right, this pictures evokes many stories!!!

  3. Anna? My old Daytips pal?? If so, hope you are still writing! Great to see you. :)
    And Alison, I love how your mind works. My first thought was of the Titanic -- although I guess if that were true the suitcase would have a few more water marks. Wouldn't it be cool if it had love letters inside?

  4. Yes! Your old Daytips pal. Can't believe you remember me. :o) Your post is ironic since I've been living out of a suitcase for a while. The story line I explored: what would you take with you if some emergency required you to leave your home suddenly? You could only take what would fit in that one suitcase.

    Congratulations on your novel!
