the smell of my desperation has become a stench

MOLGER square mirror

There is a 12-foot long wall in our living room that was the original location of the abstract painting that we moved to another wall, so it’s been sitting there empty for several weeks just begging me to please do something, it’s been feeling rather naked. So I drew up some plans in my head, and this weekend we’ve got a major project planned that includes framing eight photos and hanging four of these square mirrors that I picked up at Ikea. I’ll be sure to document the entire experience and will let you know if our marriage survives the act of lining up all those objects. My prediction: we won’t speak to each other for several hours tomorrow afternoon.
