The Afterlife of Discarded Objects

I am so flattered and honored to be one of the feature stories on The Afterlife of Discarded Objects this month, with my story about my grandmother's English fine china collection.

This is a story that is very close to my heart for a number of reasons. It is so wonderful to see that someone else appreciates the strangeness and beauty of this collection and of how extraordinary my grandmother is. I wrote this for her when she wasn't feeling very well, and upon reading it she felt better.

I think there is always a power in words, and it's amazing to see that mine can have such an affect on a loved person.

Do give it a read, and let me know what you think, and maybe contribute something brilliant to this amazing project yourself!
