the couch.



there's a spot, on the furthest end of the couch, where one can sit and see nothing but water and rock and the green of trees newly bloomed.

i sat here the first day and thought. this is where i will come. to sit and write and drink my coffee. to begin my day with a quiet prayer. and feel my body hum with gratitude.

i am slowly learning that things happen just as they meant to. time unfolds and reveals us to ourselves.

and for now, those are the only words i have.

You are poet. Seriously, this post was like catching a glimpse into Walt Whitman's soul. Marvelous.

I agree with Emily, you ARE a poet. Every post takes such simple things (don't we all have that special spot) and makes them gorgeous. Love it.

I have a chair like this in my bedroom. Peace is palpable there and ideas (and sometimes forgiving thoughts if my husband is lucky... ) flow. I love this post. Your writing is lovely and inspiring. Please don't stop.

hey, seems like you got a really nice living room there! congratulations ;-) there´s nothing better than a space for just hanging out, especially if you didn´t have one for a while! i can relate, i live in stockholm, where i´m sure the housing market was inspired by some 70´s soviet system. sweet picture!

"feel my body hum with gratitude"...what a lovely phrase.

Please write a book or something. The way you put words together is so inspiring.

Cassie said...

Splendid. I look forward to what you unravel and the things you share.

Lucky girl. Alas, all I can see from my window is the small, yappy dog across the street.
