Every House Has a Soul

Glimpse the soul of old and new houses this April. Watch out for daily posts with a photograph, a sketch, and some words revolving around houses.

(Theme Reveal for #AtoZChallenge @Blogchatter)

“It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn’t it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human.”
― Nora RobertsKey of Knowledge

Do houses, buildings, architecture, possess a soul? Walking past an old house, I’m often compelled to stop and observe and imagine. This month, I’m planning to give shape to these fantasies with some art, photography, and words.

  1. What a brilliant and artistic theme!! I love art and wanted to post art works or doodles this time for AtoZ, but I could not dare as I’m still in the process of self learning. Would eagerly wait for your artistic houses! 😊 Good luck!!

    1. Thanks so much, Aurawithwriting 🙂 I’ve opened this challenge to all my readers – and if you have a photograph of a house that’s special for you, email it to simz.at@gmail.com and I’ll illustrate it as a part of the #AtoZChallenge.

      Don’t worry about where you are in your art journey – just share your work. I’ve always believed that art is for soul and is a journey ….

      1. That’s amazing! I wish had some photographs of the houses, as I mostly lived in apartments. Houses have a soul is such a wonderful thought. I’ve dared to share doodles, though not flawless for AtoZ this time, based on your recommendation 🙂
        Thank you very much for inspiring! 🙂
