  • Warning: this post is only suitable for architectural aficionados, if otherwise inclined it is strongly advised to stop reading now. Although our new house in Gouda is very well preserved, the moist Dutch weather had eaten away at the façade for centuries, and this consequently needed most TLC. Appropriate 18th-century sash windows were installed, as I recounted before, but also the front door and over-door window were incongruent later additions that needed work (fig. 2). A historical mind-set however always comes handy: we knew that one sad day in the annus horribilis 1939 Gouda’s most distinguished house in Louis XVI style was torn down to make way for an electricity plant (fig. 3), but fortunately the main architectural elements were preserved in the local museum. We first found and bought the richly carved over-door window, which had ended up in a salvage yard in Groningen. Then, to our astonishment, we discovered that the door was eventually used elsewhere on our very own canal as entrance to a social housing project, and were surprisingly enthusiastically received by the housing agency when we made enquiries as to whether we might buy the door. Although I feel slightly guilty for depriving the inhabitants of the social housing units of their magnificent door, it is rewarding to have now reunited the rather rare Seize ensemble of door and over-door after being separated for eighty years in our own façade. All this sounds easier than it actually was, as it involved endless meetings with heritage and planning authorities, not to mention necessary restoration work to the fragile carvings to make them withstand rain and the occasional heatwave again, but in the end we feel it is one of the finest achievements of the restoration, I hope you agree! #proud #architecture #historicinteriors #dutchhouses #canalhouse #facade #18thcentury #louisxvi #louisseize #architecturalsalvage #door #window #restoration #renovation #georgian #georgianarchitecture #countryhouse #homerenovation .

  • Для перезагрузок прекрасно подходит правильно подобранная музыка.
Важно найти не то ,что давит на воспоминая. От этого эмоциональная нагрузка ещё сильнее воздействует на человека.
Такую музыку я называю отвлечённой. Она несёт ,так скажем ,простой релакс. Хорошо подходят мантры : шум дождя ,раскаты грома ,порывы ветра.
Ещё одним  действительно действующим способом пользуются не все. Это простой выплеск эмоций : через крик,плач. Можно отработать удары ,если рук не жалко.
P.s. Удары следуют отрабатывать не на людях.
