The Well Furnished Pad

It was February,1964 and I'm not sure where in Boston the this was. Probably Norway Street. I'm pretty sure that her name was Barbara but I can't remember his. It's always easier for a guy to remember chicks' names. She's sitting on a big soft cushion. Bean bag chairs were still a dozen years off in the future. None of us minded sitting on the floor. It was pretty common to sleep on a mattress on the floor, no box spring even! Now if I tried that I'd have to crawl around until I got near a doorknob or piece of furniture so I could pull myself up.

Of course when everybody sits on the floor you tend to hang the art work lower too, keeping it eye level. He was the artist.

I like this picture because of what I see in it: reading is one of the great pleasures in the life, at least for me, and I see two relaxed people doing it (reading, I mean).
I see what seems me an abstract painting on the wall which gives me the idea of a place connected with art.

But I see a sense of quiet which I do not see in the behaviour of today's young people.

PS: maybe I'm getting old and have some kind of nostalgic feeling...
