We stuff our lives into these boxes. Filing out the old & unnecessary to be rummaged though again at another time. We stuff our paperwork & documents & everything that holds us accountable into special boxes that are then off to a hidden spot. Diamonds & watches & deeds & wills all get locked away into metal boxes that can withstand explosions & heists. Then there are other boxes that are falling apart & damaged by weather or moves. Some boxes get stuffed so full that pieces of innards start popping out like some sort of horror scene, while other's are meant to simply showoff the splendor found within. We then stack them to the ceiling & fill out every corner & inch of extra space.
The box can be used in a literal sense as well. We've all heard the terminology "to
think outside the box" or "hating to be boxed in". Most of us have gone to the Box Office or seen a box match. Some of us have ridden in a boxcar & some have eaten box berries. We even have stories of boxes holding all the evils in the world & religious artifacts. These simple & wonderful things can help us get organized & hold all things that life needs. So next time you see those brown cardboard boxes in the attic or garage or dust off those delicate or decorative containers....remember that they are doing exactly what you have planned for them to do....holding your life's belongings & therefore....holding you!
