Personal belongings I hold most dear

What personal belongings do you hold most dear?

If someone could take from me my guitar, my Greek New Testament, and my Hebrew Bible I would grieve and mourn, but I will also be certain that the very memory of what those things have contributed to my life will dry my tears and embrace me with perfect comfort. My guitar needs fingers, so they are most dear too. The two halves of the Bible, sacred to hundreds of millions worldwide, need a hungry and curious mind, so my mind, as designed, is on that list of most dear. After all, thinking is a thing too.

Unlike Jimi Hendrix, who on discovering his lover was no longer residing at the Red House, said “I can still play my guitar”, I, without sacred text and guitar, would play the memory.
