Shadows on the wall

Returned to Victoria and Fallingdowne this week,  with lots of unposted blog scribblings due to time and connectivity challenges during Merida stay. So I hope you'll indulge me as I do a bit of catch-up.
11/13/2010 Tom suggested staying in a hotel instead of the house, which does make an awful lot of sense. Chairs and internet are objects of great longing these days. There seemed to be a point to be made about occupying the place. I think the point has been made, but I still stay after brother Doug has gone, not sure whether it is inertia or sheer cussedness. There's not much to see in the house these days - two hammocks, and a lot of tiny biting ants that swarm any food item that is left out for more than a few minutes. But there are these cool shadows on the kitchen wall in the morning.

  1. The point made of staying in the house was, for me, hearing the community that surrounds the house. Today, with my own house in Morden, Manitoba all-in-pieces, I dearly miss the hammock Debbie supplied--better than the couch.
    The point: something is enchanting and telling about staying close to a building that is going through dramatic change.
