I LOVE this photograph, especially the beautiful blue light emanating from the corner lamp. The photograph is of a room in my home that became “my space.” It is the place where I could walk through the door, and almost instantaneously, I was transported to my own private sanctuary. In it, the concerns or worries of the day would dissipate and my mind could rest from the endless parade of thoughts that typically plague me. The room became my reading room, yoga studio, meditation cushion, and more. It was a blessing to me– my own slice of heaven.
What about you? Do you have a haven which nurtures you and allows you to simply be? Where is it? I’d love to know.
Oh my, that is such a cozy, inviting spot! So many interesting things. I would love such a spot of my own. I have the back half of our family room with my sewing, books, computer, and a wall of fabric. I do have to share it, though, so I try not to take over the entire place. There is something comforting about surrounding ourselves with the pieces that reflect ourselves.
Dear Lynette, Thank you for your lovely comment. I think that every woman needs a place of her own. I’d bet that you can commandeer a place, even if it’s only a corner, that speaks to your heart and soul. I, too, find it comforting to surround myself with items that I love. I don’t know if this is true for you, but I have so much “stuff” that matters little to me. It is the pictures drawn by my g’children, the photos of loves long passed, and my favorite flowers that lifts my spirits and warms my heart. I hope that you discover such a place for you–you deserve it. I hope to see you again. Blessings, Lydia
I imagine a place like this for myself – my desk, my computer, a warm window sat, a view, drawing board, sewing machine, an easel. It goes on. I call it my studio of curiousity and creativity
