Don't really like the last bit, but the rest of the story was beautifully written and wonderfully descriptive.

This is really captivating and creative. I didn't quite understand the end but I liked the twist anyway. I think it has to do with painting the present to resemble the past that one is used to. But of course, like most writings, it is open to several interpretations. Nice work though; just a bit difficult to understand.
