mise en scène
The other day I noticed that the old apartment was empty – the one we had lived in before. It faces west with a view of the city, and has certain conveniences (a trundle bed, a refrigerator that doesn’t block a window) that the current apartment lacks. I emailed the property manager about it, to see if it was available, but it had already been rented. There is nothing positively wrong about the current apartment. We’ve lived there longer than we had lived in the old one. I miss the view, though.
