the house on our south side was demolished last week, not so long since the January 2012 demolition on our north side
it feels so disturbing, so sad to see this happening everywhere; this was a good home for one single family since the 1950’s
the yard had some lovely rhododendrons though overgrown with too many trees and invasive ivy, all now cut and ripped out
including two giant cedars, here with some interesting icicle like rips on the stumps
how many tree rings can you count on this twenty-six inch diameter stump?
our home feels a bit exposed but there is now so much light and views for us neighbours around the property

Added later: Oh, how could I forget: the noise and the pounding? As I sit at this computer in this room on the south side, right next to the ‘zone’, I suddenly notice all the art work on this wall has gone higgeldy-piggeldy. A mini-earthquake.
