I really enjoyed this post from Thoughts on Theatre and thought you might too. I’m a real homebody, and a cancerian. So creating a comfortable, beautiful, home environment is essential to me, and one of the ways I nourish my senses (and soul) on a daily basis…. Since I don’t have a garden right now, I buy flowers every week or two (even if it’s just a bunch of carnations), and arrange them in everything from old jam jars to vase. When their petals fall off I often gather them into tiny bowls, scatter them on my daughter’s pillow, or put them on my altar, along with other ephemera I’ve found, maybe a shell, or a seed pod, or a dried leaf of a particularly lovely shape, I recently found one shaped like a pear which I’ll post a photo of tomorrow…. Books are another essential ‘furnishing’ and there never seem to be enough selves. I work best in a clutter free or least clutter contained environment? What about you? What things do have in your home that nourish your senses and create beauty? I love to read about or see them? So feel free to write me.

Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas in Paris
“America is my country, and Paris is my home town.”
Ernest Hemingway with his cat
“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another…
