When we first moved into our Swedish apartment, it was completely empty. The echo remained for a long time, until we got a rug and I hung some things on the walls.
A lot of the hangings were homemade collages made from bits and scraps that accumulate in one’s suitcase while traveling. Subway tickets, racing programs, museum maps, and currency all went into collages.
Now that I am starting to think about moving back to Canada, I am deciding what to bring and what to leave in Sweden. The collages have served their purpose here and I don’t like any of them enough to bring them home. So… they will have a permanent home on the blog!
