“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”
Each year I try to allow time to go to Maine for a few days alone. Time to be, to wonder at the clarity of winter sky, to count the stars at night, to breathe the air. Before settling in to those pleasures, however, I have to clean, get everything spit spot so that when I walk through a room I see it, marvel at its perfection, revel in its silence, know that for this time the space is mine filled only with my own energy.
I go to my favorite chair by the fire with a perfect cappucino and a book or rather the one that is on my iPad. Sometimes I read, sometimes just sit and enjoy the light coming in through the window. Most of all I enjoy just being, and while I am glad to have this time alone, it’s good to know that in a few months the house will once again be filled with good times shared with family and friends. There will be clutter and fingerprints, new spots on the slipcovers, new memories….that’s what makes this place home.
So, what are you doing this winter Sunday?
