Umsinga Unhinged

It’s some time now since I posted pictures of our deconstructed home; to digest the naked horror go here. That was August. Now, nearly 2 months later, we are preparing to unpack our lives.

Standing in the doorway of one finished room, momentarily beautiful, and now a packing crate Carl Andre installation I surprise myself considering that MAYBE I don’t need all this stuff.

After all, browsing these heavy and capacious boxes I find things wrapped and packed from the last time we re-modelled a house.

How long before a 6 bedroom 12 room home is a little cramped for this family?

I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

    Well, ‘before’ is good, but we need to gasp in amazement at ‘after’. How about some new snaps?

    ‘After’, later. Can not guarantee ‘gasp’.
