‘home’

A house, to which one expects to return but does not, becomes a relic.

I stepped out the door one day for what I anticipated would be a moment and did not return for weeks. The impetus for the absence is a fascinating, devastating, poignant and somewhat tragic story, which I will not tell.
Upon my return I looked at my home as though it belonged to a stranger. I live a solitary existence so the things I had left , as I had left them, were all that would have remained to speak for me. I wondered what the individuals elected (or hired) to wipe it all away would have thought.
So I decided to let the rooms have their say.
My house is a work in progress. Tragedy in reverse. It had fallen apart before I bought it.
I am falling it back together.

Indeed your house has its say. I think this was your first deviation. I'm wondering if then (8 April 2006) you guessed you would reach today such a huge gallery and "success" all over the world now!

I'm a long way from that but there is hope and promise.
Pretty much all anyone can ask for.

Your comment made it so emotional to me...*sighs*. It's a very strong image, exactly because it is layered with too much emotional pains...

If I may ask - did the falling back together work so far?

Falling back together is in progress.
I make a point of never seeing my work as painful.
Bittersweet on occasion, funny when no one else sees it that way, exculpatory at best and sometimes rather odd.
But I try to avoid immortalizing pain.
It doesn't deserve it.

I agree, it doesn't deserve it. It's my morbid mind then, who sees pain most of the time, in most of the things around me. You're right - your work containts much more than immortalizing pain!
