Time to reflect back on the past year suspending in time those moments which are held dear to your heart...changes, births, deaths, happy times, heartache. All the events that are part of life.
There is archive after archive holding memorabilia of the past but what holds that which is personal? Diaries, still photographs, videos, movies perhaps. As you look back over the course of the past year, what moments do you want to capture in 2015 to be revisited in the future?
Make the preparation of this year's time capsule a fun family activity. Include special facts about each member of the family, favorite recipes, vacation memorabilia, current events, coins, food and gasoline prices, fashion statements.
Time capsules are not limited to any one particular 'container' so to speak. They can be as small and simple as a cigar box, a mason jar or a whole trunk full of stuff of the times. Within the technological age of the 21st century, the time capsule can even be digital holding gigabytes of data, photos, videos, audio files, etc.
What is in your 2015 Time Capsule? Your time capsule is a personal step back in time preserved until time for its resurrection. Prepare a time capsule either personal items in a box or digitally to be re-examined a year from now at the dawning of 2017. What has changed your life in a significant way? What is your favorite food? What do you feel you could NOT live without? What will you do differently during 2016? These are just a few thought questions to ponder but get to work and get it laid to rest...at least for a year. It will be interesting to re-investigate 2015 at the end of 2016 when 2017 arrives.
