Rantglass - because that's how things are.



The new neighbours that moved in recently reminded me of the Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe. With all the bickering and excited squeals of the children that seemed to echo well into the night, it is obvious that we are going to have a fairly difficult time adapting to their presence. On my part, however, I have been regularly peeking through the windows to see the progress of the renovation works conducted on various parts of the house.

Then again, moving in to a new house always brings much excitement. There are the interior decorations and ‘reserving’ of rooms that will have to be attended to. The many closets, accessories, and fancy thingamajigs needed to spruce up the whole house into a place worth living in.

I have lived all my life in the house I am residing in, and I do not have plans to go anywhere else. Although some parts of it leaked, the ceiling needs mending, and the walls are decorated with my masterpieces, a home is still a home. I wonder how it will be like should one day come when I have to leave. Would it be with a heavy heart, knowing that I would be leaving a significant part of me behind? Or would I be somehow looking forward to a different place that would be fashioned out of an Ikea catalogue, to start a new chapter of my life?

Almost every home is a house; but not every house a home makes.

Sleeping to recuperate from illness makes wonders. It was a lovely dream I had of Fitz; but as always, I could not remember much about it. Sigh.
