One Last Goodbye

If the Featured Image gives you a bit of vertigo, good. You see the last remnants of my favorite home office ever before I surrendered the space to our daughter, who moved into our apartment yesterday. She is fresh from a rehabilitation facility specializing in brain injuries. Tomorrow she undergoes intake evaluation at another institution that may treat her on an outpatient basis.

We moved into our current residence in October 2017. The massive second bedroom window provided great view of the street, and neighborhood westward. I shared the vantage with our cats Cali and Neko, whose attention belonged to birds, squirrels, and other felines.

My wife suggested taking a last photo of the room, and you’re looking at it—captured using Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Vitals: f/2.2, ISO 100, 1/60 sec, 13mm (film equivalent); 10:21 a.m. PDT, April 11, 2023. That big fluff ball claimed the blanket and comforter before Annie could make the bed. He does look cute and cozy.

I share the ultra-wide shot to reminisce but more to show off the smartphone’s camera capabilities. Why are you still reading when you should be ordering the S23 Ultra?
