Bought myself some flowers and a Cactus to cheer me up and help me feel settled in my temporary room. Also found this amazing old gothic iron candelabra on the street to go with all my other bygone oddities. Feeling more at home now!
This is the home of a forester. He and his family was sent to Siberia during WWII. They lived in an underground home dug out of the earth for 8 years. Sometimes I wonder whether his love for the natural world was shaped during these 8 years of captivity as a young boy. What a strange, sad, and beautiful story he has! You’ll have a chance to learn more about him in my upcoming thesis show this spring!
