We invited "The Polish Lady" to come along on this house-looking foray. The Polish Lady is the long-time resident of the Hawthorne Eco Village whose amazing garden and gritty determination to stay in the neighborhood often rates a mention on my blog...
The house was in a "pre trash out" state of being, (rather cluttered, to say the least) and the person showing the house had power of attorney and the ability to say, "Oh, sure, you can have that...it's going to be thrown out anyway."
The Polish Lady saw a statue of a saint and wanted to rescue it, rather than risk the possibility the statue would be destroyed in the course of the house being trashed out. Here, she tenderly holds the saint in her hands for a moment. However, she decided to leave the statue behind because it had already been broken and repaired.
It is bad luck, she explained, if the statue is broken. So there was no sense taking it along.
Me, I guess I actually prefer a broken saint over one that is perfect.
But, like I often say, I attend "The Church Of The Dead Bolt Lock."
However, for the record...I have no idea what to make of that "glowing cone" which seems to be in the picture. The small, squarish object in the Polish Lady's hand is a light switch with a Christian message.
