The photo challenge for this week was “Neglect.”
I didn’t have to go far to find neglect for my photo. I’m surrounded by it in my own home. Everywhere I look there are signs of broken dreams and neglect. Overwhelmed by all that needs to be done in our home, we choose to do nothing. This photo is of one of many areas where paint has chipped off of a wall. When I say choose, I really mean that I “settle” for doing nothing because my husband has no desire to do anything to this house and I am overwhelmed with doing it all by myself. Every year I tell myself that I’m just going to start doing stuff with or without him, but when it comes down to it, I’d like to have a partner in this and I chose to not do it all by myself. So, the house continues to look old and worn, and neglected.
