Quiet Nook

Reflection

Come find me in a quiet corner of the house. 

I am a newly configured quiet nook, standing in sharp contrast to a lower level, messy office. 

I am a sanctuary of tranquility. 
For the past months in the midst of de-clutttering winter decorations from the living and dining rooms, I became a storage area. That was unacceptable, so a great exodus of winter items to the pull-down attic began. Slowly, my space was transformed. 
I am a peaceful writing place to slip into in the early morning hours. 
Styled in the fashion of a bed and breakfast room, serenity and simplicity exist in my space. 
I am a safe haven where time passes slowly but in my sacred sanctuary alone time is not lonely. 

I am a place that the muse visits; whispers her soft tune as the world unfolds each day. 
From the outside world, I hear the birds chirp. I imagine an array of thoughts floating out through the window and connecting with nature. In this flow, words circle back finding a home at my desk.  
I am a reading and writing corner, a cherished space for reflection and wonder. 

Come find me when the quietness of the house settles.

I am always here for you.


Is there not a better way to start the day than to be alone in my quiet corner of the house? 
No constraints or tasks exists here in my quiet space.
I am your place of tranquility. 


Where do you go to still the chatter, find quiet,
and invite the muse into your life?
