“Kick your shoes off, do not fear
Bring that bottle over here
I’ll be your baby tonight.”

The poetry of the theater of renovation

"J’ai bâti dans ma fantaisie
Un théâtre aux décors divers:
- Magiques palais, grands bois verts 
Pour y jouer ma poésie."

(Ch. Cross in Sonnet)

What a joy it can be to renovate

"All are architects of Fate,
   Working in these walls of Time;
Some with massive deeds and great,
   Some with ornaments of rhyme.

Nothing useless is, or low;
   Each thing in its place is best;
And what seems but idle show
   Strengthens and supports the rest."

(H.W. Longfellow in The builders)

Is this the door where my dearest lives?


“Oh, sister, when I come to knock on your door
Don’t turn away, you’ll create sorrow
Time is an ocean but it ends at the shore
You may not see me tomorrow”

(Bob Dylan in Oh, Sister)

Renovation blues

Renovation blues

“I shall not feel at Home – I know –
I don’t like Paradise –
Because it’s Sunday – all the time –
And Recess – never comes –
And Eden’ll be so lonesome…”

(E. Dickinson in I never felt at Home …)
