Glimpse the soul of old and new houses this April. Watch out for daily posts with a photograph, a sketch, and some words revolving around houses.
(Theme Reveal for #AtoZChallenge @Blogchatter)
“It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn’t it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human.”
― Nora Roberts,
Do houses, buildings, architecture, possess a soul? Walking past an old house, I’m often compelled to stop and observe and imagine. This month, I’m planning to give shape to these fantasies with some art, photography, and words.
