At a Crossroads

My love for Hales Cottage is like a passionate love affair:  one week I want to say “enough is enough, I can’t take this anymore- I must let you go.” Then other weeks I think I can’t bear to break with this part of my history.

How do I keep my home? Am I just being sentimental?  Is there an option I am failing to see?  I would love to write a story on my family, but who would want to read it?

I have been standing at a crossroads for a decade now, and I must soon choose a path before I am pushed.

Cosmic universe-please send me a sign….

    The contrast is indeed striking, I love examining how little the house has changed when you look at the details of the photographs separated by a century. When was the house refaced and whitewashed?
    The choice remains yours to make. Others in your family have no doubt stood at these crossroads. Your life is forever intertwined with your history, but your life is also your own to live. This post contains so many contrasts, in image, thought, word… self.
