"You spend your whole life trying to pay off a house, and when it's finially yours, there's no one left to live in it." -Death of a Salesman
You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you're satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you've got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.
I get myself into trouble with these sorts of things...I feel like I absolutely must go far and far away right this very instant...and see the sun rise over the ocean there...and make friends with the mountain men, and stop waiting for things, and take a deep breath, and let them teach me how to fly.
I'm an IT consultant for a corporation by day, photographer and artist by night.
