I know. What kind of photograph is this? An empty room. A view of some scraggly shrubbery. Not very artistic. Nice light, though.
This is the shell of my new life. A white-primed canvas upon which I can apply the palette of my creativity, both literally and figuratively.
Since this picture was taken, there have been many changes. The bare concrete has been covered by beautiful bamboo flooring. My furnishings, books, and other personal treasures have arrived and been unpacked, filling the cottage with the comfort of the familiar.
I’m getting acquainted with my new community and taking care of business — opening bank accounts, figuring out the best places to grocery shop, and so on. Still looking for a car so I can have my independence back. What will it be? Safe sedan? Cool convertible? Cute compact?
Laying down the layers of color and texture on that canvas, making progress every day. What will I be?
My desk sits in front of that window now. And those scraggly shrubs outside the window? It turns out that one of them is a crape myrtle, now in full, glorious pink bloom. The hummingbirds love it and so do I.
Linking with Kat Sloma’s Photo-Heart Connection for June.
