Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

This week’s challenge comes form a term employed by Bill Waterson in the epic Calvin and Hobbes strip:Transmogrify (for more information and other interpretations click on the link).

Calvin transmogrified into a creepy crawly to gross Susie out, I prefer the transmogrification of the leaves in Autumn.

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf becomes a flower.” – Albert Camus


The traveller always wants home to be as it was.” (from The Passion by Jeanette Waterson).

I was born in London.

I grew up in Slough.
In the eighties, when I went to Australia, my parents moved to Shropshire.
In the nineties, when I went to France, I returned to witness my parents move to Worcester. Now I’m in Georgia and my parents have died in York.

My Georgian friends are surprised I have no ancestral home, no home in England, they usually have a place “in the village” somewhere. I have no village, my wife has no village home, either, her late father sold his plot of land several years ago. We are merely renting our third flat in the capital “Tbilisi”.
