Portia Munson has inspired our class to create a pile of blue items. Students brought two blue items to contribute towards the pile on the table in the center of the room. Compared to Portia Munson's, our pile was not as substantial. In the pictures below you can see the difference.

However, it is easy to wonder what all of these items are. Some might just say that there is a hat, pillow, and a phone case. What these items can really be expressed as are memories. Each item on the table is its own moment in time. Everyone might not be able to connect a memory to a specific item on the table, but the student who brought it in, most likely, can. These are pieces of us, whether big or small, and even if we sometimes forget they will always be there. This is what I see when I look at this table: memories piled together.
