Much traveling, so little time at home… sweetheart and I capitalize on this rare day in August where breezes kiss the skin. Impromptu picnic in Fort Greene Park. What a lovely afternoon…The amazing Opinel knife belongs to me (courtesy of Cassie’s divine Gravel & Gold), but alas, the Steinbeck belongs to Sweetheart. I’m shamelessly burning through George R.R. Martin’s Storm of Swords like wildfire. I’ve bought each book from Greenlight and they (mercifully) don’t make me feel like I should be reading something better.
Little by little the bird feathers its nest, and object by heart burnished object we surround ourselves with lovely necessities of memory and function. It is these things that make a silly Apartment a Home or a silly Wednesday an Occasion.
Whether my nest is an old farmhouse, a sixth floor tenement walk up, or a brownstone basement... whether I share it with family, vagabonds, women of heart and mind, or a little brown cat and a sweet ginger banjo, my principal joy is filling it with light and laughter (and corralling).

Want the Opinel! (…and Sweatheart…)
I’ll consider trading the knife for some mysticalpoot. Sweatheart… he’s precious.
How fun to be reading this happy post while sitting in the awesomeness of 180 Rugby Road using wifi just hooked up by that ever lovin’ cuddlesome fluff.
Ever Lovin Cuddlesome Fluff indeed! I’d love to see a pic of the pool table light if’n you get the chance.
