My grandmother left me an odd stash of
ten little clock pins with mother-of-pearl faces.
I don’t know why she had ten.
I don’t know why she had them at all as they
don’t look like something she would’ve worn.
She wore flowery things and pearls and metals, but this is so modern!
Perhaps they were for a group she was part of, the Grange or some such thing?
Symbolic of an event? I’ll never know.
I sold many of them finally, but kept one and
strung it on matte black hematite beads with tiny
Karan Tribe sterling beads for myself.

Me… why I journal!
