CA Trip: Mitchell Lived Here and Here and Here


A complicated little house not far from the Moreton Bay Fig.
Not easy, lotsa mistakes…. Logic (an architectural drawing) is easier.
Not my style anymore… and little fun for me! I release those days!
Relying on seeing leads to charming wonkiness.


He and his brother slept in the converted garage.   Roses along the fence, it looked homey.


And down the street, what I think of as a typical So Cal track home.

I am leaving pages blank across from these images for him to write his memories!

“Memory is more indelible than ink.” Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”  Me… why I journal!

    That’s a wonderful idea, to let Mitchell write in memories of the places he lived. It will be a special keepsake for him.


I love hearing from visitors!
