on sheds

Kingaroy shed

the SHED as METAPHOR     | many people like sheds.

 a place to store things that might come in handy some day.. or may not

 a place to dabble

 space at your own pace

The shed metaphor for me is inspired by the mystery, smells and textures of my grandparents’ shed in Kingaroy, Australia.  [above) It was a place of awe for me as a small child, it still impresses though is much emptier than it used to be, and reminds of the psychological draw of place as I live so far away.

 

The Edinburgh Shed (the locals, and my grandma who migrated from Scotland to Australia in the mid 1920s,  insist on calling it a castle)..
