Details make my new home

June 27, 2013
tags: ,

Ok people, I’ve been lazy, uninspired and boring lately, I know. But now that the move across the Great Pond is over and I have bought a sofa, a vacuum cleaner and a bike, the most pressing issues are out of the way and decoration can begin. Here is my progress on the details so far:

hand stirring in the morning

best home design magazine on my floor

k

Henszlmann Imre utca keys on my wall

k

claw feet in my life

k

Africa on my mind

The whole thing starts to feel like home slowly. What I still need is a big picture above an armchair in the living room, ideally an enlarged photograph from one of my travels. I am undecided between various options from Russia, Kenyan country roads, Eastern Mongolia, Budapest or even Freiburg! As you might have suspected, I am already homesick for the Old World. Badly. I need some peace and comfort, at least in my daydreams. So I am looking for a picture that reminds me of well isolated windows, quality news, functioning mass transportation systems and good sausage – in one word: Europe. Or at least something with a soul (that’s where Kenya and Mongolia come in.) On the other hand I don’t want to get too depressed and nostalgic, after all not everything is perfect north and south of the white sausage equator and you can find a good cappuccino here as well.

So next time I”ll present you the options and you can vote!

    csodálkozom a “functioning mass transportation”-on. Biztos, hogy ez Europa? Laktál te Rómában is, tudtommal ott Sem Volt ez perfekt. Utolsó Berlini látogatásodra is emlékszel?

      Hát igen Drandikám, távolról minden olyan szupi. Itt azt mondanám hogy k.b. Róma szintjén van a dolog, de mégis USA fövárosa… Puszi

    Hali Katikám,
    végre vezeted megint a világhálós naplódat!
    Több dolgot is megjegyeznék:
    – milyen jól tud mutatni egy egyszerü kulcscsomó is a falon. Nem is tudtam, hogy ez van neked.
    – nem is mondtad, hogy vettél olyan gyékény szatyrot, mint az én ösrégim
    – ezt a kék orrú cipöd még nem láttam
    – ez az elsö fényképed ebben a naplóban
    – és a kis piros pöttyös tejforraló fazék is nálad van!!

      Aha, a raffia Kenyából van. Ott járattam be a kék orrú cipöt is.
