Removing Wallpaper, a Meditation
Over the last week, I've been peeling wallpaper off the walls of our bedroom as preparation for the redecoration. It is a long boring process but as long boring processes are, they are often meditative and calming. I am enjoying myself, not unlike two summers ago when I painted the exterior of our house.
I am done with the red toile that has been providing a backdrop for sleeping, drinking coffee, reading... Although the wallpaper is pristine, the bed linens and curtains are tired-looking and the decor no longer reflects who I am/we are. I didn't feel a thing when I ripped off the first piece. A sure sign that the time had come.
