I am newly arrived.
I have just come to this place after many travels, and will settle here.
A house has been given to me, or I have taken a house – I find myself in a house that seems like maybe it belonged to someone before me, but there it is, it is mine now.This house, this place is out on the edge of and yet part of a community – a school? A town? A hippie commune? A camp?
I am now part of this community in my little new / old house.
But I’m concerned about security.
There have been transgressions before – incidents have occurred in the past, violations of the perimeter have been known to happen.
Absolute securing of all boundaries is necessary.There are the usual doors – front door, side door, back door. This is my first line of investigation. None of them are particularly sturdy. None of them inspire absolute confidence.
But there are also 2 doors at the bottom of the stairs that lead up to the second floor – a pair of wooden doors that seal the upstairs from any intruders that may make their way into the first floor.
One of these wooden doors doesn’t close properly – it won’t lock.
This is a concern. Upstairs I am rooting around in things, cleaning the place, looking for tools, turning over the problem of the less than sturdy doors, the unlocked door in my mind.
Up on this second level there are piles of rich colourful fabrics scattered around on the floors.Some movement underneath the fabric turns out to be 2 tiny translucent kittens. As if they are so young and so new and so tender, they aren’t quite actually there yet – they are mere outlines, and are otherwise see-through.
It wasn’t in the plan for this house, to take on cats, but hey, what the heck, the wee things need a place to live I figure, and I go back to fretting about the doors, the precedent of boundary breaches, how to create more security.
In no time the kittens are already becoming cats – one orange, one a sandy brown – no longer translucent, but taking more and more substance all the time.It will be good to have these cats around.
Animals on the property is a good thing.
It occurs to me I should consult with the other people here in the community about how to fix the doors – surely someone does carpentry, a locksmith… There must be people I can ask about securing all entrances.
But I realize the problem in this new place, as in so many places I have been…

Very interesting. Well thought out. Will enjoy following your discoveries but your photos suggest you are on more than one adventure. Just saying.😉
Most observant! Yes, many planes of exploration at once… 🙂
Trust yourself, the universe, that you are alive and full of awe.
The question comes up again and again and again, hey?
One must surround themselves with animals. Good for you.
Now, didn’t you just move into an art loft? Why the change?
Twas a dream… 🙂
But now that you mention it, the move into the new loft is one of the newer community situations in my life – hadn’t thought of that. Hadn’t really thought of any of what the images in the dream might mean, really… only got so far as to write them down…
eerie and awesome pics – perfectly suited to your dream kat!
Glad they are working together well 🙂
Ah my dear Kat! I love the images of blurred lines, blurred boundaries.
The art and color of it lend themselves to the exploration of fabrics and prints on canvas… Your dream seems so clear to me:-) Hugs
It isn’t really all that mysterious a dream, is it?
You are welcome 🙂
There remains a controversy behind the doors,hahaa!
Still not resolved! 🙂
A really wonderful journey with you Katalina through this post and terrific images .
Thanks so much, James – am exploring this long exposure thing, seeing what results might be interesting….
