A deep sense of foreboding and sadness overcame me as I walked up and down, row upon row of paraphernalia. Here before me was a public display of someones home and personal belongings at an estate sale. Everything, including the house and property, would be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
By days end the whole kit and caboodle had been auctioned. The footprint of a lifetime had been divided and parceled, then carried away to another life and time. The essence of who had lived there was erased in a single day.
