“What Would You Take?

I was asked this question recently “What would you take if your house was burning down?” It’s a question I think we have all asked ourselves before especially as Australians where bushfires are a real threat in the summer months. But this time I found it a little hard to answer. Assuming that my loved ones are indeed safe and the family pets are out of harm’s way, what would I take?

My first thought was the photo albums, those precious memories that are so delicate and all too easily destroyed. But then I realized- I don’t have any… Apart from the odd Polaroid photo, even my wedding photos are on my hard drive. Our world has been digitized.

I stumbled across this blog in my recent hunting which asks people this question; “If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.” The blog displays carefully considered photographs of personal possessions submitted by hundreds of people from various backgrounds all over the globe. A little snapshot into their world.

So I asked some of the staff here at DiskBank to answer the same question.

Darcy said:
“All things motorbike! Dirt bike, road bike, bike gear, etc.”

Lenise said:
“A photo of my mum I have on my wall, jewelry, my camera gear/hard drive/apple products”

Jason said:
“Laptop, Bass Guitar, great grandfather’s planer and grandfather’s painting”

And finally after much deliberation my answer is this; (and let me assure you it’s nothing profound)

“My laptop, my notebooks, my grandfather’s dictionary and my necklace given to me by my husband”

So what would you take?
