When we first moved into our house in Northfield, my room had this wallpaper that I thought was hideous. It had all these drawings of soldiers from the 18th Century, and I really didn’t like it. I mentioned it to Mom, who said she’d do something about it eventually. In other words, get used to it, kid, it stays on the wall until I consider it worth my time.
One of my uncles suggested that maybe I could do something with it to make it at least bearable, like color in the soldiers or something. My idea was to have the soldiers speak as soldiers do, with plenty of four-letter words. Mom caught sight of it and she was definitely not happy about it. It definitely expedited getting new wallpaper, though.
For a while now, I’ve used high-definition color bars as my wallpaper on both my desktop and laptop computers.
I think I finally got tired of it as my wallpaper, so I’ve started collecting pictures that I think would make nice wallpaper to give me a break. There are lots of places that you can find wallpapers. Pixabay, Pexels, and Unsplash are three of them. One of my favorite places is Voyage Onirique, run by Angelilie. She does some beautiful work and they can all be downloaded. Here’s my current wallpaper, from her site:
