Abandoned Homes


This is a photo of a calendar left in kitchen of a home walked out of in 1999. The owner left everything as is — apparently it was one of many homes where she did the same thing— locked the door and left for good. 

I have been staying up too late, again. I do want to share my story of the Berkeley house, but it’s getting late. I hope I can get back into the house tomorrow and take more photos to show you.

Today I went to the wrong place not once, but twice! I thought I was feeling more settled. Ding Dong.
