OUR HOME

Italo Calvino said: The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts. Describe the ghosts that live in this house: Image credit: “love Don’t live here anymore…” – © 2009 Robb North – made available under Attribution 2.0 Generic

Recently my wife and i began taking a lot of pictures together, we decided that we would for the record mirror what we looked like under different scenarios and places. Interestingly we discovered that the photos sent messages, and we realized that those taken at home in our house presented the most comfortable pictures. Why?  Everyone has his or her comfort zones, we are creatures of habit and most times we develop these habits without being conscious of their development. Take for example; try taking a photo of you at home enjoying a cup of coffee, then compare it to being at Rituals with other people enjoying that same cup of coffee, you will see the difference. The home is the place of haven, the fortress which you will protect with your life, this is where you peel of the face of pretense and release the real you without fear. This is where you can establish your heritage your destiny, and this is where you have the best and the worst times of your life. These are the ghosts of our environment; they say what we have become and whom we are. DImageoes your house do that for you?
