Remember the house ?

A few weeks back (here) I wrote about
the view I have from where I sit at work.

Black jumper Praia collection - Beige cardigan Forever 21 - Anne Klein animal print flats - Neiman Marcus black tote bag
 Since I sit in a corner I have a view of the street.
I get to do a lot of people watching as I keep the shades open.


I have respect and love for old buildings and the Spanish style homes in
the area so it was sad to see how the for sale/rent sign was taken down.
I could only expect the worst.

View from the office
As I had imagined, the house torn down little by little.



Which was a pain to watch.


Specially when it came to the Peruvian style wood balcony.
I know, I know at the end it's just a house.


I saw and heard as the entire thing was taken apart.


I kept looking out the window all day long.




Could not concentrate.







The house is now gone.


But there's this huge tree left.


As I grow older I have more and more love, appreciation
and admiration for nature.

This tree stands alone and I get teary eyed as I write because 
I can only imagine the worst: that it will be taken down and that I will 
most likely have to see every single moment of it.

On the other hand,
I can only hope for this lot to be turned into a parking lot
and that the tree is left for its glorious shade.

That is so sad! I too get all broken up when I see beautiful things torn down, especially trees that are older than us all.

So incredibly sad Lorena as you know I hate all the old buildings being destroyed, lets hope they leave the tree in peace .... wishful thinking eh? I am annoyed too as there was a beautiful building where I drive by to go to the supermarket and that has finally been demolished, guess whats going in its place ...... another damn supermarket !!!!!!! xx
