Right on the heels of yesterday’s inspiring daily regimen from Henry Miller, my dear Maman sent me this to-do list from the man in black, Johnny Cash. I particularly like #2 and #3, and in light of the source, #9.
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).
