I spent most of this weekend on cleaning up house, running errands and a good amount of time working on some papers. The change of seasons caused us to take care of some minor repairs and renovations and a huge clean up that is still underway: this means that the house itself feels lighter, more buoyant and also, more filled with light. R did most of it, taking care to preserve the necessary and cast off the rest. The whole process made me introspective and more determined to remember that what matters isn't the four walls where you live but the lives within.
(Wall in progress!)
