Artist Convo Story

“House” by Ashley Anderson, is a house barely suspended in air. The house had defied all odds and remained standing after a strong earthquake which had shaken California. The coastline had crumbled and many prime real estate house slipped into the ocean. Not this house.

Ellen was elderly, lived by herself but loved associating with kids. She was called auntie by all the town and many kids went to her house when they were having a bad day, looking for a cookie to eat perhaps. But because she loved those kids, she wanted to teach them the lesson of hard work. She gave nothing without the kids doing something in return. Her large property was an immense garden and orchard which she lovingly tended. She would ask the kids to pull a few weeds or till the earth and she would give them teats. Many people marveled at how she easily got these kids to work. But she went farther. She would donate beautiful blossoms to the local parade.Her fruit of the crops would be given to the homeless shelter. She brought all around happiness to the community. Mother nature did her damage when she shook California, but she allowed Ellen’s house to remain. Even mother nature knew the importance of generosity and what an impact Ellen had on the community.
