The Earth from Above


This photograph is of a miniature representation of our house

which has been our home for a couple of years

it fits us like a pair of worn jeans

just right

a little frayed and falling apart in places but made of solid stuff

every now and then we patch it up

nurture it as it nurtures us

this house has room to grow

(it has a room for Stephen to build a miniature of our house and the surrounding countryside neighbourhood)

to rise and spread beyond our previous forms

and occasionally get a quiet aerial view of ourselves, our lives, the earth from above


“I am much inclined to live from my rucksack, and let my trousers fray as they like.”
― Hermann Hesse
