the song remains the same–for now

While there is absolutely no guarantee that, after over 14 years, I might be moving, it has become a distinct possibility. And suddenly I was overcome with nostalgia for a space that I still inhabit. Suddenly the walls and windows became very precious. This small apartment has soothed me and contained me in volatile combination; it is at the same time active expression and shell. I've pondered some of this "tyranny of things" before.

I took these photos over a year ago, and some things have changed since then, but then again, its all the same.

We are of equal parts - to nest, and to explore.

The "Fra go nard" gave me pause for a moment; looked like a Gaelic saying.

Cha d’dhùin doras nach d’fhosgail doras.
No door ever closed, but another opened.

I love your space, and your kitty. But what's with the "5" in the kitchen?

Bob- thank you-- I like that gaelic very much.

Carol- the "5" is in the kitchen cause the "2" was already in the bedroom. Ha!

Everyone likes Winkle!

Oh and Sew Nancy-- Thanks very much
the child's dress is actually a velvet coat. Its difficult to make out but its a dark maroon velvet with a Robin's egg blue cloth lining.
I think I should do a post on it-- its one of my favorite things.
