My old house & where the wild things are
When L was working in Hamburg recently he was booked into a hotel that is located in front of my old house. I used to live there before I moved to Berlin to live with him, 10 years ago. The house was abandoned when he took the pictures, it seemed like I just moved out.
I really loved the little house in the backyard, it had a garden on both sides and it was my first proper apartment after a long period. It was a little bit spooky too because it was unblanked from both sides but I liked it so much because I felt such a relief to have my own place.
It was expensive but the only thing I was able to get because the landlord was the only one who trusted me without having a regular income. I used to pay in daily or weekly rates, whenever I was able to I gave him some money.
The last two years before I moved into that little building I lived either in a shitty flat together with people I hardly knew, temporarily even in my very small and humid one room working place (souterrain) or in the tiny tiny room my friends offered me when I was completely broke.
It is strange and mysterious to see a place where I used to live long time ago, my live was completely different then, a lot of memories are coming back seeing the little house.
Sunday I will go to Hamburg for work, just for a couple of days, haven't been there for a long time.

I am very much looking forward to seeing Spike Jonze movie adaption of where the wild things are by Maurice Sendak. Thank You dear L for the link and compliment, I am very moved.
I wish one of that wonderful wild things would have shown up in my former garden.
