Grabbing pieces of me

Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

The house is burning and so is comfort, familiarity and security of several walls that witnessed me every day. As flames rise and I bid farewell to my shelter, I run to get my passport, my wallet, an old family photograph, a silver idol of lord Ganesha, the book Siddhartha (Herman Hesse) and The Prophet (Khalil Gibran). Though the house will reduce to ash, I will reconstruct my home and me with these separate physical, spiritual and intellectual pieces.
