At 83 years old...my grandmother left to create her own world within her house, one that we would have played in as young children. Now on the rare occasion when i would visit, the moment you enter a real sense of time had frozen. Layers of history place on top of each other, making me feel a little overwhelmed packages of memory's hidden away. Objects attached on to the wall....all reminders of these lost memory's. Strangely even after spending a huge amount of my childhood there, I felt like a stranger in the house. Even after seeing objects that would activate good memories twelve years ago......they somehow seemed lost to me or maybe a defence method leaving me feeling detached from my past as if it was someone else's.
