on july 15th i woke up from an (almost) sleepless night
the eyes focused on what was happening in nice
a lump in my throat
and fear and anxiety.
the only place i wanted to be, where i would feel safe and appeased, 
was la maison la roche,
at the end of this tiny dead end street.
alone in the house, surrounded by soft colors.

"can a house be haunted by a disappointment, by expired love, curdled, lending an imperceptible perfume to the halls and rooms. it is the whiff we catch at open houses and estate sales, whose occupants have divorced. according to 1 corinthians, love is patient, love is kind. according to joy division, love will tear us apart. what happens when a couple outgrows a house, when they wake in a beloved room to realize they don't belong there, that they've been living an illustration of a dream?"
three homes, three love stories
