I recently visited a friend for the first time in his beautiful Arizona home. Each room was exquisitely decorated in a colorful contemporary theme vividly illustrating the couple’s personalities and journeys through life.
What struck me most were the proud displays throughout their home of accomplishments and passions – through their art to landscaping to furnishings. As a musician he had displays of historic instruments and unreleased prototypes, rare books and gifts from famous musicians. She had a room filled with medals, trophies and memorabilia from the athletic accomplishments of her life.
To a greater or lessor extent, we all collect the treasures from our life. For some it’s walls of photographs, for others it’s art from their world travels. Seeing this magnificent home filled with the artifacts of lives well-lived reminded me of the opportunity we all have to celebrate this journey through the treasures of our lives.
