I mentioned earlier that my walls looked very bare, but I was having trouble convincing myself to hammer nails into the walls. Well, you can see that we have started. The first nail holds a crucifix, and the second nail holds this. I wanted to hang this shell right away because the past few months have convinced me that we truly have no lasting city here--no lasting home--no refuge at all except for the heart of our Lord, and everyday is a pilgrimage on the way that Home.
Underneath the shell is our Harry Potter closet.
Just to the left of this picture, the wall joins the wall that you see in my profile picture at the corner of the room. Despite the way this picture looks, the walls are the same color, the color in the profile picture being correct, and, as you can see, the room really did turn out to look very much like the blog, as I suspected it might.
