AS LONG AS THERE ARE BOOKS . . . plus a little bit of light



This is the cosiest room in the house.  It's also the room that gets the most light.  It's the family room or the library or whatever-you-want-to-call-the-room-where-we-like-to-hang-out.  My desk sits between two windows that look out on the woods.  Most mornings this time of year, there's a pileated woodpecker tapping away at a tall pine tree across the street.  My desk is close enough to the kitchen to refill my coffee cup as many times as I like and yes, it's also dangerously close to the refrigerator!

I love being surrounded by books and memorabilia, like this THANK-YOU NOTE from a third grader whose class my husband (whose last name is Brown) and I used to read to once a week.  Who says romance is dead!

Then, there are these figurines .... The Pied Piper and his followers......  For years they sat in my parents' living room.  Today they are falling apart.  If you look closely, you might notice the young piper, (third child from the left), is missing one arm.  I don't care.  Each time I look  at them, I see my mother and I remember things we did together and stories she told me about eccentric southern relatives I never met.  I keep thinking there's a story there somewhere...  


 

If I just show up at my desk every morning, who knows what will come.

 

Meanwhile, I hope you all have a Happy New Year.

Happy Writing!
Sarah
