"One man's trash is another man's treasure"
A while back / an acquaintance / moving to a new studio / called / and said that / my daughter / who loved beading / could have the beads left in the old studio. / My daughter has since lost interest / but I haven't. / The sight of the beads / scattered on the floor amongst the debris / of the abandoned studio wasn't very appealing / but the beads were! / We have since / in stops and starts / sorted them by / type / color / size. / Today my son surprised me / when he agreed to join me / in another sorting session. /
