I have nothing on the material plane important enough to me to act as a soul object.

I have lost too much stuff that I had cherished over the years, and it has cured me of becoming attached to things.

I have left instructions that I am to be cremated with this object. Long story short: I made a wooden trivet in the shape of a heart, actually i made several, the one in particular was painted by one of my kids, I DON'T REMEMBER WHICH ONE. To this day they fight, with fists, over this stupid heart. If it doesn't go with me, my family will completely disintergrate after I am gone. They both love this thing and for a lot of reasons I love it. so that would be my soul objects.


It can't be worth more than a quarter.


that made me well up a bit. Very touching. Is that a totally goober reaction?

I'd have to say the cookbook that my grandmother & I put together. A few months after she was diagnosed with bone cancer, we took a lot of her recipes (she was well known in her small town for her cooking and baking) and made a cookbook which she gave out as gifts the last Christmas she was with us. I think we ended up getting about 100 copies printed. So my soul object would probably be either my copy of the cookbook or the box of recipes that she gave to me.

Mine would be the antique German wagon that I inherited from my mother's family. Oh, okay, I just took it (I did ask). Anyhow it is a kid's wagon -- my most favorite thing.

I do have something to say. But it would sound weird.

There is this beautiful temple I met when I was 12 years old. It is superb architecture. I visit it again and again every two years and and languish there and have to tear myself away. It is quite abandoned and worship is not regular. But in 1998 while I was just watching this magnificent silent tower in the blazing sun suddenly from the tower separated 300 pigeons and took off in a oval sweep in their usual round. I was quite struck.

Ever since then for the past 8 years before I close my eyes for a siesta I visualise myself as one of those birds and fly around the tower getting a magnificent view. I feel the heat and the wind and know nothing other than about the shade in the nooks of the sculptures and be at my fave place.

My soul object would be....

My red Gibson Les Paul guitar. Man I love that thing.

Or, it would be the case of CDs that fucking got stolen (Sometimes I'll be sitting around, and I'll think of a CD that got stolen that I hadn't thought about, and then I start cursing).

Music is good...

That'd have to be my HC copy of Terry Pratchett's Eric...looked forever for this book many years ago, finally found it for a buck in a junk shop in Rockingham, NC. Keep it in my fire safe.

That's awesome, UL. I remember the days when I would have said my soul rested in my '67 Tele. But then I got a '98 Tele that just plain played better. Then I got a circa 40's National that had all this historic value and could cut through any accoustic jam session. Then I got a Wes Montgomery hollowboddy from this really killer jazz cat that has played the circuit for years. It has an ES1 pickup in the neck. Then I got... well you can see where this is going. I miss the good old days. Sad
