Relic

Relic:

1.

an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest.

2.

a part of a deceased holy person’s body or belongings kept as an object of reverence.

3.

an object, custom, or belief that has survived from an earlier time but is now outmoded.

 

This old type writer my youngest fell in love with, at a flea-market and purchased for 2 Euros, now sits on a shelf in my room. It is reminiscent of writers like Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs,  Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Miller, Bukowski and so many others, of an era long passed – like this then indispensable tool- they gather dust on the shelves of the libraries around the world – hoping to be rediscovered.

    • I like books and reading. In college I owned a similar type writer…I guess it ended up at a flea market too, having this one is fun. It works fine too- just needs a new ribbon!
