I’ve had a quick visit back to Michigan.
Every time I return to the Midwest I’m taken in with the wide open spaces of rural areas and the quaint, early 1900’s architecture of the local towns and villages.
My mother moved from her house into a smaller accommodation. Her house was cleared except for a few favourite things that she took with her to her new apartment. My mother was very brave and philosophical about the move and it was a lesson in letting go of “things”, which is difficult yet liberating.
As Tennessee Williams once said, “we all live in a house on fire.”
