What if we both imagine something and it is more or less similar to each other. 

It is a picture of a place we spent some time together between 2013 and 2015. It had a big plant, an old wooden floor, a piano that was out of tune, and a lamp that looked like a boat. 

That lamp is the first detail that we picture differently. It hangs from the ceiling and I picture it as the hull of a ship that is mostly underwater. I always imagined the rest of the boat sticking out of our upstairs neighbours floor. Like a submarine slowly sinking into my room. But without looking like a submarine. 

For you the lamp might not have looked like a boat at all. You probably picture the lamp differently. If you would imagine four things in the room, what would you pick? Would you pick the speakers, the cactus, or the good vibes that we had there? How would you picture those vibes? When I imagine the vibes I picture the sunlight shining through the window casting a playful shadow inside. Or maybe I imagine the small monkey on top of the piano, a stuffed animal that held the cash for our rent underneath its spread legs. Maybe you wouldn’t picture good vibes at all. Maybe that place was like a prison for you, it was very small, and we didn’t have much space to ourselves. Maybe we imagine a completely different place. The pictured place is based on a memory after all.
