We all saw the new house, in the new town far away, months ago, but now I can hardly imagine it. It's moving day. The empty house the family leaves behind is filled with memories watching TV curled up on the sofa, the space by the street where the pepper tree blew down, the dents on the stairs where the roller skates tumbled down all by themselves. At the new house a rubber ball hides in the tall grass and an orange Frisbee sails over the fence, thrown by strangers who might someday turn out to be friends. A lyrical text and soft-hued, intimate paintings capture the experience of a first move through a child's eyes.
