Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough.

Just look at how the gray-patinated flensburg stone on the fa├žade of the house has blended with the stones on the walkway to create an almost seamless integration. The massive window in the photo above gives you a glimpse into their lives displaying different images in a way that is almost surreal. And the view from the kitchen is almost enough (dare I say it) to get me to love cooking. As you continue on through the photo journal of their home, I highly encourage you to seek out the images I omitted here.
