Place, Space, Peace

My favorite chair sits in the middle of what I have already declared my favorite room. The room, my "office" is right off my bedroom, in the front of the house, facing the street. It remains unfinished, at this point just a collection of small pieces and big ideas. My favorite chair sits smack in the middle of this unfinished room, and I've recently taken to spending parts of my day in here. And these times, spent closed off from the rest of my world - in the dark, in the cold, wrapped up in my blanket - have become some of my favorite times.

I set out to "build" this room as MY space, set apart, dedicated solely to recharging my spirit and feeding my soul. I have envisioned (and still plan on) doing great things in this room - studying, writing, reading, praying, meditating, yoga, working, working out. But right now, I've just taken to BEING in this room. The past few days I've come in with a book, but mostly I've just wanted to sit, and think, and BE...and it has been really great. I can hear the world right outside my window, and hear people coming back and forth looking for me in my room...with no idea that I'm siting in the dark on the other side of the door. It's been pretty liberating, stealing a slice of time for me...

And when I'm ready, I'm free to press play, and resume my life at will.
