I wanted to stay with objects that delight.
Lights are strung on our bookcases in both studio and home,
colorful, brilliant spots of twinkle that delight our hearts.
We both love color, and our choices of objects that sit on our bookcases are brightly colored and evoke strong memories and emotions:
photos of loved ones (cats and dogs and a few other family members)
and deities and pieces of pottery and childhood objects and
candle holders though we rarely burn candles and never at the studio.
Right now I have a few things from my mom’s home,
as I try to decide what to do with them, to keep or let go of them.
We love books, art books and Buddhist books and Vedic books and history books,
books on the all the god/desses from many traditions, and sacred geometry.
They are sacred objects; I do not own an iPad and have no desire for one.
I love the smell and feel of a book in my hand, and some of these books have been with either Mitchell or I our entire adult lives.
The info within delighted us and fed us and transformed us
and grew us up into more conscious individuals.
“The ache for home lives in all of us.
The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”
