Symbolic House

The house my parents had to sell when they got divorced just went on the market.

I could buy it (but that would be fucked up b/c it would be weird and upsetting for my mom especially).    It’s on the market for $379k.  Interesting that number is so close to the proceeds I’d get from selling the condo.  But also interesting that, looking at the interior pics (it’s been heavily remodeled)… I don’t want the luxury they represent, even as I’m nostalgic for my childhood, for rooms and people who no longer exist.

My high school is no longer the same school.  My college is no longer the same college.  My first job – the people and the company no longer exist in the same office.  We better take the time to enjoy good things while we’re in the moment, because later everything will be different.  The people I’ve spent time with who are no longer in my life.  I should pay careful attention to appreciate and enjoy the people in my life now because later many of them will be gone.

Nature’s first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf’s a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay. 
- Robert Frost
