NB. I actually began this post long before I thought of the retrospective. In fact, I believe it was rediscovering this in my "drafts" folder which inspired me to do the retrospective. So, while it is not a part of the retrospective per se, it is a little side journey, a small look in greatf detail at just one wall of my house over the nearly 19 years we've lived here.
The year is maybe 2003, maybe 2004. (I'm going by the size of my daughter at the computer.)
The walls are very red. And I am still using film in the camera.
I tidied things up during the Fall Cure in 2006. But it was still VERY RED and VERY LOUD.
In 2007, during the eight week Fall Cure, I decided I would paint the room a neutral and quieten the whole thing down.
Things continued this way for a long time with various purges along the way, like this one during The Cure of 2009:
Looking a little sparse in 2013
And here, the best I think this wall ever looked, January 2015.
And, now....drum roll, please....
And yet, somehow, not!
