As we continue to take steps to leave the city, I had been wondering what would happen to our house if/when we sell it.
So many houses around us are being knocked down — replaced with three or four new ones.
Our house is more than just bricks and mortar to me.
Everywhere I look I see pieces of us.
The limestone wall Boj and I built together — struggling to lift blocks that weighed almost as much as us.
The mismatched tiles in our kitchen we salvaged and installed in “our” unique way.
The artwork our kids scrawled over the walls — literally!
The beautiful tree in our front yard.
I had a dream a couple of weeks back.
The tree spoke to me.
She said — “Amy, it’s ok. Whatever happens I will always return to the Earth. Your memories of me will always be with you even if the physical no longer exists”.
I know she is right.
