When Land of Excess glimpsed the top photo of the closed purple curtains, somehow all we could think of was the Ku Klux Klan, even though we know that they run around in white sheets not shiny purple sheets. [Oh!! We just looked up the getups on Wikipedia and discovered that the “Imperial Wizard” wears purple.] Then, on clicking through the online real estate listing photos to the next photo, below, we thought instead of the Episcopal Church. Looking at this photo reminds us of how it felt in our youth when we were made to go to Sunday School. Those “sheers” and the purple drapery and the wall-to-wall carpeting all conspire to insulate, suffocate, or otherwise separate the viewer from the livelier more “real” world outside.
