Putting it off.

Starting the next phase is not happening for me inside myself. Alan and i are preparing to move out of our house and head south but I am finding it hard to participate fully – my heart is not in it yet. I know it will get into it and hope it happens soon. When the house is all dismantled and packed it will fall into place spiritually as well but as usual I am procrastinating and remembering other occasions when this mode became preferred. I well remember devouring westerns by J T Edson when I should have been preparing to write an undergraduate exam. The jacarandas were blooming most beautifully – a signal that if we hadn’t started to study it was too late. The peach blossoms were the signal to start studying! So now instead of J T Edson it is my favourite TV shows and interneet bridge!

About retrocentricaussie

We are a pair of ageing 'gypsies' who find junk and sell antiques, especially objects from the art nouveau/art deco years and old and well-loved tools. We also occasionally buy antiques as well!! We haunt clearance sales, garage sales, charity shops and sometimes dumps. Lately we have even been to a 'proper' auction. The thrill is in the chase for good stuff at prices we can afford and still sell the items on at a profit sufficient to support us. We recycle what other people don't want anymore, we find new homes for nice things. We sell at markets and antique fairs, swap meets and wherever else we can find. Our clientele are mostly ordinary people who want something they can afford that will enhance their quality of life. We are especially pleased when generation Y buy from us. It suggests that appreciation of quality and good design is still part of our modern aesthetic.
