Handbags laid away on the shelf
even a few overflowing paper gift bags
each a time capsule, or a landmine.
For today’s foray, 
I chose the colorful  cat-patterned bag:
hospital bracelet
various cards:
      roller rink  
      aquarium passes  
      discount cards
matchbox car
Burger King toy
several pens
Hike Ohio brochure
Thumb Drive
a friend’s address (who has since moved again and I still haven’t written)
an almost blank journal:    
   scribbled cartoons of myself bald    
    list of tasks, including radiation and infusion dates

I set it back , contents intact, maybe for another 7 years.
