“It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty.
They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices.
Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn't it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed.
They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human.”
The last post of summer 2019 *sigh* and what a summer it was!
With snow already in the forecast for next week its anyone’s guess just how much of this beautiful season we’ll actually get to enjoy but I say bring on the cozy sweaters, the pots of homemade soup bubbling on the stove and pathways littered with golden leaves.
I’m so looking forward to sharing this magical season with you @loves.alta and can’t thank you enough for all you’re doing to get me back on the road to recovery 🙏❤️
