SEP 4, 15 .. A 94-SQUARE-FOOT STUDIO APARTMENT CAN BE A CHALLENGE ..

Before I left my studio apartment to come here to the Hong Kong City Hall Library I was having this super-intense dream. I was dreaming that I was surrounded by Asians. Every where I looked were Asians. In my dream I was shoulder-to-shoulder with Asians on a Hong Kong Tram.

Then suddenly one-of-them moved to get off the tram and pushed-into-me!!

I asked .. “Where am I?” .. one of them said .. “You are on a tram in Hong Kong Central.”

It was so real I could not believe it. Funny huh?

The below scenes were NOT A DREAM ..

A 94-SQUARE-FOOT STUDIO APARTMENT CAN BE A CHALLENGE!!

After the above jacket stopped dripping I hung it outside of the bathroom to dry and then I washed my dress shirt ..

If we were to have a fire-drill or an actual emergency I would be challenged to be able to get out of my door ..

Above my music was cheerily blasting away to keep me company ..

Oh My Goodness! .. It is past midnight! .. I am dead-tired! .. What To Do? ..

“What about us Dad?” .. /SIGNED/ .. THE MESS IN THE ENTRYWAY ..

“Look entryway mess .. IF we have some kind of a disaster I just may need to be able to get out of here quickly.”

In the center of the below photo .. right on the very bottom .. you can sneak a peek at the black suitcase just down from my little hacksaw that jumped under-the-bed to get out of the entryway ..

    Suffice to say, I have seen your THINGS have an amazing ability to s t r e t c h out, multiply, flail about, clutter, and TAKE OVER. And, having lived in the flat with you last spring, I know the only surface you have upon which to “organize” your things IS the bed. I also know you have an absolutely uncanny way of corralling everything and making them behave!

    What a beautiful day September 4th is in Hong Kong compared to September 2nd. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TOMORROW SEPTEMBER 5TH!!!!! Love, Patti
