A Spartan Existence. 94 Brings A Desire For No Clutter, It's A Waiting Room.

Netta is my mother-in-law. She is 94 years of age and lives alone. I was thinking recently that it might be nice to try and capture some of her through her house. It's always spotless and always tidy, it's always a very calm place. This is the fourth I have processed, there are more and I do need to take more. This is her bedroom, it has the same tidiness and order that the rest of the house has and yet feels more spartan. The whole house is comforting and yet the lack of clutter and tidiness of it all, almost feels like a voice screaming in my head. I'm not sure I can explain it any better than that.
Netta lives in Taunton which is the county town of Somerset. If you fancy a peek of the location then here is an

aerial view.

So many squandered moments
So much wasted time
So busy chasing dreams
I left myself behind

I've seen it all and it's all done
I've been with everyone and no one
