Megan Adie: "A collection of cards housed in a small blue box. Each card has a photograph on the front and all are vaguely enigmatic; a bronze bird sculpture, boxes of cocktail stir sticks, a jar of beach glass. On the backs of the cards are a letter, describing a road trip and including section of news about the trip, familial musings, and the other meaningless-meaningful things we share with our family.

"Though it is not important to the project, the images and the text are quite personal in nature. In 2007, following the death of my grandmother, I took photographs of everything in her house; the images chosen for this book were from among those pictures. The letter is a recreation of an actual letter written from my grandmother to her sister on the same road trip described. The idea of the project is to muse on home, the things in it, and what makes up a life."
