Ho un servo muto che era di mio padre, me lo aveva prestato i primi anni che ero nella casa nuova e non l'ho mai restituito. Lui ora ne ha un altro e non gli serviva più. Era tutto sbilenco e rotto e in verità ormai mi innervosiva ritrovarmelo tra i piedi in cabina armadio. Un giorno che mio marito stava caricando detriti per la discarica gliel'ho passato... ma nel momento di staccare la mano mi sono trattenuta. Mio marito deve aver visto la mia espressione, ci siamo guardati. Lui mi ha fatto un cenno, "fidati"... me lo ha riportato stuccato, incollato che pareva nuovo!
L'ho carteggiato e dipinto di un bel smeraldo che avevo in casa da tanto ed eccolo qua... è sempre ingombrante e poco utile ma quanto sono soddisfatta! Davvero tanto.
I feel great satisfaction in saving furniture or objects from destruction or neglect. The satisfaction is even greater when it comes to things that have been part of my childhood. Even as a child I have always liked "things"... often hung around the house patting the furniture, I watched the knots in the wood, I appreciated the different sensations to the touch, opened and closed doors and drawers, I spent reviewed all the ornaments of the house remembering their stories, where they came from those who had brought ... and I'm still exactly the same. The funny thing is that it is so even my husband, is very keen to objects, memories ... For this reason, our house is full of things. This is our famous "Temporary Forever" ends up becoming, in fact, forever, because we become attached.
I have a mute servant who belonged to my father. He had lent me the first few years I was in the new house, and I never returned. Now he get another one and did not need it anymore. It was all crooked and broken and in truth it unnerved me when it was between my feet in the closet. One day when my husband was loading debris to the landfill I passed it to him ... but the moment to pull the hand I was detained. My husband must have seen my expression, we looked each other. He gave me a nod, "trust in me" ... He brought it back totally renovated with plaster and glue so that it seemed new again!
I sanded and painted with a beautiful emerald color I had at home for a long and here it is ... is always cumbersome and not very useful but now I'm satisfied! So much.
