i believe...



i believe in tufted velvet couches. so much so, that i want one. or two.
i believe in texas-sized thunder storms. absolute downpours. dark skies and the refuge it requires.
i believe in hours set aside for reading. in coffee shops. at lunch counters. during  three month european excursions.
i believe in european excursions.
i believe in a finding a home. building a home. needing a home.
i believe in latte bowls and latte makers and stacked plates and tousled beds.
i believe in fault lines and cracks and the space between.
i believe in the steady breaths and silence of sleep. restorative and whole.
i believe in moving trucks and packed boxes and the cleanse that a move invites.

Ohmyword. For a long time when I was a child, we had two tufted purple velvet love seats that were hand-me-downs from my great-gma's house. My mother never loved them, thought they were a tad garish and they were really a bit too boudoir for her taste (I mean...tufted. purple. velvet). I loved them of course. I was appalled when she finally replaced them. To this day I wish I could find and salvage them.

But since I can't I'll lust after every tufted couch I see, velvet or not.
