40' storage container being delivered in front of the new building.
Change of plans this month of July 2011. We realize we need to empty my childhood home and place it on the real estate market before winter hits, that being at least by August. So, priorities change and suddenly we realize we will need a quick storage solution if we are going to empty the house in NY and we are not finished enough to move into the new space. This storage container seemed like a monthly rental storage fix - close enough to the building to facilitate moving when it becomes possible, and large enough to hold two studio's worth of materials, art and household items.
After spending about two - three weeks in NY cleaning, sorting and staging packing for a larger truck move we are nearly ready. Childhood memories stirred by objects, fabric and the stuff of a life lived with creative parents has been a wonderful experience.
Finding my mom's art portfolio's from Chicago Art Institute was a wonderful experience, cut short by time constraints to explore further at a later date. The house was full of wonderful memories, some long lost in my childhood minds eye and re-discovered. How wonderful!
