THE MOVE “My Funky Hideaway”

THE MOVE is over.  I am ensconced in my new digs. Somehow, it all fits. I call it “my funky hideaway”, making a concerted effort not to take my emotional temperature every ten minutes. A lot is good about it. The apartment is cozy; it has good energy; it has three closets (that is a lot for one bedroom apartments – don’t ask); the patio is huge (relatively speaking) with room for barbecue and plants; the piano fits; the Eurobox signal is strong; it is next to City Market; an Italian Deli is on the corner; “Andre” sells flowers/plants across the street; the tram is close by; my landlord speaks English (he is British); AND the Med is a few blocks away.  

I won’t list the bad.

Now, between you and me, living in a town is different from visiting. I am into my third year in France with reality checks around every corner. I am convinced that solving problems will keep me young.  Different neighborhoods, different everything – a different lifestyle than I’ve known before.  Each block has its own personality. This is how I have imagined it would be to live in NYC. I am learning which streets are safe and which are not. It is a process. Right now, I feel wiped out – August and September took their toll.

These pictures give you an idea of the “before”. I am still working on the “after”. Once thirty-three paintings are on the walls, I may call it “my funky art studio”. My “City Pad”. 

 

THIS IS A PICTURE of Lacy – my porcelain treasure. I bought her at the Nice Monday market, browsing through antiques (and LOTS of junk).  She was a show stopper when I saw her. I wanted her immediately.  I like her face and her outlandish, velvet costume. My homage to theatre.  She reminds me of commedia dell’arte characters.  My love for threatre history.
