Old House

Old House | Hartline, WA | 2018

“It was a mistake to think of old houses as empty. They were filled with memories and faded echoes. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls …

Wasn’t it, after all, a kind of life?

And there were houses that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human.”

— American author Nora Roberts
