I’ve determined it is artwork and photos on the wall that make a place look like home. A friend of a friend has this as a one line bio on social media, and it stuck with me:
“Buy art. It tells the future who you were.“
– Scott Bodenheimer
Made a special trip to move all artwork to the new old house. The place looks so bare without it.
Took another carload of stuff to St. Vincent dePaul and the Friends of the Public Library. Felt good to let go of things thinking whoever finds them have an awesome moment for themselves or to gift.
