Profound bravery and heroics are evidenced in these words and pictures. We have always come to spaces and structures already planned and built (terms applied loosely in the case of our NC houses), that we then adapted and transformed to accommodate our own singular way of living. Building from the ground up (even when using prefab parts & plans) requires the making of 10 thousand decisions that I have always allowed others to make for me.

Lalan says that Number 5 has at last realized its potential under my care & curation. She spent some years of her young childhood under this very roof with her fractured family, and seeing its rooms filled with love and color is healing for her in a way that I cannot imagine. Still - it was a gorgeous set and I simply provided the lighting, scenery, and props.

Make this raw new space your own. Hang posters and fry onions. Grow old and be contented.

About attentionSpin

attentionSpin is a consulting practice formed in 1990 to create, automate and apply a universal scoring system (“The Biggest Picture”) to brands, celebrities, events and policy issues in the public eye. In the Biggest Picture, attentionSpin applies the principles of market research to the process of media analytics to score the volume and nature of media coverage. The explanatory power of this research model: 1. Allows practitioners to understand the requirements for managing the quality of attention they receive 2. Shows influencers the level of authority they hold in forums where companies, office-seekers, celebrities and experts sell their visions, opinions and skills 3. Creates meaningful standards for measuring the success and failure of campaigns and their connection to marketable assets.
