I'm losing my summer home today, that is, my balcony. The entire exterior of my apartment building is being renovated: masonry, balconies, air conditioning, everything. The furniture went into my living room and a friend re-arranged the room so I can still sit in it. I don't use AC much, if I can have open doors and windows but I'm going to be sealed in. I wonder how I will react when my brain is deprived of oxygen. You'll be the first to know.
