house bound

As I read in the blog “the why about this”: “…Do not allow your mind to be ‘house bound’ as the result of fears and misconceptions…”, I started to consider, that, if only the weather would be a little more sunny, I should start a journey of discovery again, a real good exploration trip. Not like a cannonball shot through a tunnel directly to the destination, but with time to linger by the wayside…

  2. I agree- having been housebound throughout a very long winter, and now without the use of a car, I find myself walking to where I have to go(even in bad weather!) – it is eye-opening, offering such a different perspective and reminding why I loved to be on such quiet, lingering adventures (notated how mundane) in the first place. The camera phone makes it even more worthwhile….

    Your photo gives me an image of a peaceful flight – gliding above it all…sort of like going home. I got the benefit of your photography, while you as the photographer got the high blood presure.

    I spent many years until recently working long hours and traveling with museum exhibitions that ‘house bound’ meant going home to my sanctuary, a place to rest and catch up on all the things I like to do.

    • hi Allyson,
      it is good that you have a positive focus on the term, writing: “‘house bound’ meant going home to my sanctuary, a place to rest
      and catch up on all the things I like to do…” – yes, who has seen your interior, the books, staircases, the comfy tables – we try to make it similar – understands, that a home like a castle is a chance to concentrate on one’s own creativity …

        Yes, and there is something to be said about being as high as the clouds. Darius’s Klimezak’s “Tree House” and “Siamese Dream,” appear to be metaphors for all that we can be…the best of who we are…in spirit and in life. I believe in the latter philosophy. It shaped a 15 year career in museums for me. To think that man’s passion can create beauty has given me a hopeful outlook in life that change is possible 🙂

  9. The way you describe exploration, Frizz, is much the same as I look at an adventure… I may or may not have a destination, but every step along the way, I am open to learn new things, and especially to appreciate the journey. Beautiful pictures.
