Hello Internet People,
I was visiting my house again today, long story (how can it not be) because I was also visiting "Miss. Tennishand" (my dentist), but this is not what I wanted to write about, I want to just share an observation I sort of suddenly had, almost a small epiphany. I have always tried to keep my house in a decent state, changed items as they got old, and regularly bought new things, but somehow as I have gotten older, so has obviously the things around me, there have been more and more things that I just did not change, some things I just liked too much I guess, and some things I did not change even when they looked really old because they still worked perfectly, and then it suddenly struck me as I now visited my own house, it has almost become a time capsule, a place where some rooms have been seemingly unchanged almost in decades, and this sort of have just happened around me, with me in the middle of it, without any real consciousness about it, and then I remembered having the same sort of feeling when I visited my grandparents homes when I was young, and now, it sort of has happened to me, maybe this in different degrees happens to everybody?
My home phone.
My telephone is an perfect example of this. Still all of these things, that I so much enjoy and appreciate, makes my house seem as a time capsule, and I suddenly saw it the way I guess visitors, and guests would, and I felt a sort of melancholic happiness, not sure I can describe it better, but all in all it was a good feeling, everything is so familiar, and since I have not changed anything, it must mean that I and my things had really sort of found each other, and found our almost perfect cohabitation's formula.
Anyway, best of rainy Mondays to you all,
and treasure your belongings no matter how old they are!
