I Am Lucky To Be Alive


Do you see the difference?

Wednesday evening I was in the bedroom neatening things up.
All of a sudden the light bridge fell with no warning. It fell right where my head would have been if I had been sleeping in the bed. It is extremely heavy…maybe 50 pounds of solid vintage rosewood.
Once it was down the mirrors were in a precarious position and could have fell on my head if I went to sleep.
Fortunately my good friends John and Lynn came over and took the mirrors down and put them in a safe place temporarily. The light bridge will also be put in a safe place. I will not be putting this back together for now.
This had been like this for over 12 years and I have no idea why it fell now.
Although I was not hurt at all physically, mentally this had an impact on me thinking what could have happened had I been sleeping. It was after 2:30 am before I got to sleep.

So glad you are still with us! I'd say you bedroom looks more modern this way, and keep the other parts stored away for good.
I want to say "What? No quilt on your bed? You are like me and make them for everybody else.

How scary! I have a similar light bridge that is 33 years old and now I wonder how safe it is.
