corners




it's tough
to go from owning a place
back to renting a place.

there's only so much you can do
to make it feel like "yours."
and i guess it's not a big deal to everyone.
some people don't mind
moving in
and sitting on someone else's sofa--
walking on their rug,
living with their choice of window treatments. . .
but i made sure when we signed the contract
that the owner would be removing
nearly all traces
that would make me feel
like i was living in someone else's place.

and little by little,
more and more corners of our humble home
are becoming ours.

I always have found renting hard, too. But I'm glad you are doing all you can to make it your own.

I wish just one of our corners was as beautiful as that. :)
