ßringing a painting into safety.

My take on this week's prompt ("bringing a painting into safety") is how do we rescue  from our collapsing world what we need to preserve ?ake  personal remains our own....
Sometimes that is harder than it sounds.Solid monuments might dissolve into sand & trickle through our fingers.........



This is a sepia saturday post.

Welcome back! We haven't tried to save very much on our side of the pond. We just bash it all down and start over again. Saving things take a longer view that we just don't seem to have.

And exactly what DO we preserve? There's another searching question?

Indeed what should we preserve? Potholes or paintings or people?
Nice to have you back, Tony.

I've reached the point where I think the most important thing we can attempt to preserve is our sanity in an otherwise insane world.

Many single-family homes in my neighborhood are being replaced by generic 6-unit apartment buildings of questionable quality. It has proved difficult to preserve any local buildings.

A pub called The Shoulder of Mutton must be worth preserving I’d have thought - then again, I’ve known historically important ones in my own home town, bulldozed, in the name of progress.

Nice to see the ability to comment back on your blog :) I have to agree about preserving our sanity, although saving the people is a good idea too.
