A trunk going back to my childhood in China … Newspaper clippings of the fall of Shanghai to the Japanese in 1937 … High school in Korea, old love letters from Bill, boxes of photographs … My old wedding dress (the veil was used to trim four bassinets; when Ned, the fifth, arrived he had to make do with a cradle) … Enough old luggage to start a used luggage shop … A veritable treasure trove of disorganized surprises.”
