well, what can I say; all the theorising vanishes,as does mum and dad’s house; the hackneyed images(spools of time for the reel-to-reel ancient tape recorder, etc); all wholly ineffectual and beyond words; all I can say is that the new owner “took an immediate shine ” to the house and I have a feeling she will tend it with loving care:)


 

Some of mum and dad’s quirky objects and mementoes I rescued and took to my own home are here: https://towardsutopia.wordpress.com/2016/08/03/fragmentsall-that-remains-remnants-from-mum-and-dads-house-my-home-of-20-years-a-tribute-and-an-attempt-at-redemption-over-time-love-from-steve/
