Our surroundings influence how we feel about ourselves and each other.

The kitchen wallpaper is acid green and yellow with bits of aqua and white on an ecru background. The shapes resemble pineapples and bottles and other kitchen sundries. On the wall in the kitchen corner is a bell connecting to a box that looks a like a miniature armoire. The box has little arrows that point to the location of who rang the bell in some far off room in this great house. Ri shows me that it still works.

I found a place. The houses were old and grand. The point of Detroit, the papers said, is that you can live for cheap in a mansion. To get here you travel through abandoned streets and broken buildings. When you come upon the trees you see the 100-year old houses pushing up against the leaves. The river is walking distance and if you stand in the right place you can see the white reflection. A trolley car used to travel up Jefferson to downtown. They call this neighborhood Indian Village. There are 351 houses and only one burned down in those 100 years. Back in the day, everyone shopped at Hudson’s but when Hudson’s closed everything changed.

"Maybe dullness is associated with psychic pain because something that's dull or opaque fails to provide enough stimulation to distract people from some other, deeper type of pain that is always there, if only in an ambient low-level way, and which most of us spend nearly all our time and energy trying to distract ourselves from."

What does it mean to be American? 

What does it mean to be an American widow before your time?  

Someone once said to me, “It’s not Sophia I am worried about. She has you.” 

I haven’t lived in my own house since my husband died. Six years ago.

"It is not possible to make great buildings, or great towns, beautiful places, places where you feel yourself, places where you feel alive, except by following this way. And, as you will see, this way will lead anyone who looks for it to buildings which are themselves as ancient in their form, as the trees and hills, and as our faces are. "

-Christopher Alexander
