Not entirely brown, Ulla Saar
“From year 1978-1982 I went to a nursery in Kalamaja. That’s when we first met each other, as by that time I was living on the other side of town, but almost almost everyday I would come and visit it. It seemed like a half mythical place to me – a town inside of town where everyone knew everyone and all the little wooden houses looked the same. Of course the latter might of had a lot to do with the fact that on soviet time the only house paint available was brown, so for years I used to think that all wooden houses are brown by default. By now though, Kalamaja has proven me wrong as it’s packed with houses in every colour imaginable. Almost. In year 2002 I moved to Kalamaja and felt at home immediately. Little by little it started to reveal its secret life to me as I went for long walks around the area and started to discover its subtle hidden beauty.”
This book is about me trying to share that beauty with you and encourage you to add yours to it.” Ulla Saar, 2010.
