Home is with you by Random places / familiar faces

Home is with you by Random places / familiar faces - The cat, you and us

You are meeting me in a very strange time of my life –

i feel like i don’t belong anywhere right now – my current physical home was a place were i was happy for some years with a man i love so very much but now we are separated and being here sometimes is like living among ghosts: not all of them are bad or frightening but nothing feels very real – my cats are my earth calls Sara bond.

Every time i spot a cat in the middle of the street i feel everything is going to be alright, a wonderful burst of hope i cannot explain but is enough to keep me going in the roughest of days!

I’m living here since the beginning of 2010 and my only wish was for it to be organized, but all my stuff keep floating around – order is still a wishful thinking (must admit i am somewhat a charity shop kind of hoarder, that does not help, hahaha)

I love the light and shadows of this apartment and i chase it with my camera around corners & the mirrors spread around the rooms,capturing myself to make sure i am present and not yet a ghost.

Home is yet a place to be.

Thanks Sara! It was a pleasure to host your story and beautiful bits of your home, thanks for sharing your sincere feelings with all of us. Wish your life is full of meetings with cats! This is happy thought for all of us, I believe.

Sara shows her analogue gems at random places / familiar faces, they often come along together with heartfelt notes written by Sara or quotes of her favorite poets. I highly recommend to stop by her place where you will meet her friends, her cats and the corners of her home all touched by the beautiful light she is constantly chasing.

    Oh yay it’s Sara! I got way too giddy looking at that photo with the books and trinkets (lots of cat trinkets) I’m so glad your cats help make your home and I hope life takes you on an amazing adventure Sara!!

    Honesty and beauty is what makes me go back to Sara’s home on the Internet. I really hope I’ll be able to visit her physical home some day. :)
