Views From Outside The Shoe Box
As above, so below, as within, so without. - Hermes Trismegistus
I know a woman who lived in a shoe box when compared to the "palaces" built today. Her small red cottage, framed by a white picket fence, was where she housed her treasures ... the antique furnishings and yard-sale memorabilia she adopted over the years. She put her whole heart into creating a cozy haven. But when she sold the home to move closer to her family, it all disappeared. Not a single shingle or coddled bit of shrubbery remains. A new house is on its way and soon few will know that the cottage existed. I regret not having pictures of her home but I still found much to see in the neighbourhood. While the empty lot waits for walls, the words engraved at the Kwomais Park Labyrinth nearby imply the outer world reflects the inner and that we are each a glint born of remarkable star power like the tree, stone, bird and flower.
