SnowPorn.

Everything about this little space gives me the snowy smiles (whatever the snowy smiles are, this photo conjures them up).  It’s a quiet corner tucked away gently…we don’t even need to envision the home itself to appreciate the calming peace that this corner exudes.  It’s just enough of the rustic to give it an edge, and just enough comfort to give it warmth.  And you can’t beat the view.  I’d cozy up here with my coffee and drift away easily.  Let the daydreams commence.

Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week’s great wintry space.

Library Lusting.

Some rooms are cozy…some are minimally sparse…some evoke peace, some exude class…others just make you want to get down to business.  This week’s space would inspire me to get all old school and break out the typewriter (yes, typewriter), light the ol’ pipe, throw a few ice cubes in the tumbler, and get to work.  It’s a slightly cramped, lived in space, but it’s that worn ambiance that gives it a dose of true character.  This room has seen and heard many stories; this room has life.  It’s certainly a book lover’s room.  Let the daydreams commence.  




1000 Posts.

One. Thousand. Posts.  A thousand posts.  That’s quite a lot of random musings amassed over the course of eight years, and I have to say, it’s been a long, challenging, exciting, tiring, but ultimately satisfying ride.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about (and damn near highly considered) quitting this blog.  On many a day, it has seemed like a complete waste of time…but in the end, the passion to communicate and the deep drive to create and express wins out.  

I consider myself a writer, and Writers Write.  I don’t believe that a writer should write for likes and follows. I believe that a writer should write what’s written on the inside.  Sounds cheesy and cliche, but it’s true. We all have a message or messages within us, just waiting to see the light of day; we all have a voice waiting to be spoken in whatever medium gives it life. Convey it, whatever it may be.  

No preachy preaching from me, though…just write. You can’t reach everyone….so just be true to yourself and create.  Cast your net out there…it doesn’t matter how big it is.  If you can snag a few fish, then smile.  If you don’t, keep going and smile anyway. Do your thing, stick with it, be consistent, and give your voice a stage.  And most importantly, many, many thanks to those that have taken part in the journey!  Your support is priceless, and I thank you.

Coffee and snow; two things that pair excellently.  By themselves, they’re great…throw in a kick ass wintry view, and the stock rises exponentially.  This week’s space would be the perfect way to enjoy both of them…and then some.  Large, airy cooking space, a wood fired stove…a lovely little place to eat, and off to the corner, a small comfort nook to sit and reflect (and guzzle that coffee).  Mornings here would most certainly recharge the soul.  Let the daydreams commence
