The Building

Posted on | November 6, 2009 | No Comments

It was brick on the outside and wood, burnt amber colored wood lining the floors and walls, on the inside. Old, yet so pristene…as if you knew it had been taken care of by a trusted soul.

The space was modern. The colors calm, yet…with a sense of security, a sense of commitment, a sense of authority that was not confrontational, but inviting.

And the brick walls. How they added character. And the flowing drapes, how they added subtle waves of gentle energy to the room. The shadows that riqochet off the semi-gloss red toned bricks were inviting…inviting me to stay, to linger, to touch the walls, to run my hand over each one feeling the texture, soaking in their knowledge of past days and expectant futures.

And it made me want…made me want to create my own story that the walls would have to keep secret…my own story of seduction between the satiny curtains as the strong brick walls stood…watching.
