Home Security

This is a picture I took last month while on vacation in Mexico.

I was struck by the criss-crossing wires, the open windows and the abundance of potted plants. It seemed airy and breezy while at the same time cozy and secure.

This month my own home was burglarized.

They got away with several things (including the new camera that took this picture) but what they mostly took was a sense of security.

Part of me wants criss-crossing wires surrounding my house, and inaccessible doors and windows.

I wouldn’t mind the Pacific coastal weather either, but that’s a different picture.
