my sanctuary

I have a small place on the third level of my home that is usually in a constant mess, overfilled with "stuff", and full of possibilities. It is a loft space that overlooks the first level of our house and the double window looks out to the branches of a beautiful hickory tree. I can also see these branches thru skylights to the right of the loft,hence the feeling of being up in a tree. Didn't you always want a treehouse as a child where you could hide if need be, read quietly, dream, make believe, think up great stories and tales, invite special friends to tea, and decorate just as you pleased? Well, that's what I feel I have-a special place I go to create-maybe a painting, drawing, or art journal page,to read- art magazines, inspirational books -listen to music instead of watching T.V. or simply just to get away from it all ,breathe deeply and dream. It is a place I feel safe, calm, relaxed, creative-a place where I can just be me. I'd like to share this place with you now and then and what I may be doing in this space on any given day. Would you like to join me? I have a comfy chair you can sit in and we can talk as long as you like. Bring your beverage of choice, tea, coffee, soda, wine(depending on the time of day?) and I'll have a candle lit. Please stay as long as you like or leave whenever you must. I am ready to share my sanctuary with you. Climb on up.
