In My Backyard Time Capsule for the Next 15 Years…

(1) The Milky Way. Not a photograph or a video or even a candy bar. The Milky Way.

(2) An afternoon of distant thunder without the nuisance of lightning or rain.

(3) Autumn at its peak, and I don’t mean a few leaves or a photo or video. I’m referring to the whole of New England.

(4) The color periwinkle from the 1980s, and Miró yellow from the early ’70s. And while I’m at it, the 1970s and the 1980s.

(5) A jar of Tang.
