Neuschwanstein Castle Surrounded in Fog by Ray Juno

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them

my parents are from the south, i was born in the south, we visited our grandparents growing up, but i never lived there. until one year i moved into my grandfather's house for several years. that first year he pulled out one of the saddest looking plastic christmas trees ever. i immediately got a live tree and flocked it. my grandfather was so excited, he got out some old christmas lights and hung them out front. and for the rest of his life, i bought him a real christmas tree every year. almost every piece of furniture in that house was painted over at least a dozen times. the last in this (sorry) sad looking pale brown depressing color. one year i had enough & stripped a small 3-drawer piece and varnished it. the second piece was a small bookcase, which i still have. the 3-drawers finally collapsed during another move.

when i stripped and finished the bookcase my grandfather and a friend of his sat outside watching and teasing me. i will be sad to see that go, but hope someone else will find it & love it as much as i ever did.


Grandma's Hands, Bill Withers
