I don’t graft old habits and patterns onto new space, at least not entirely. New space pushes me, or invites me, into new ways of living.
I tend to watch Anderson Cooper on CNN in the evening, and then I read. I expected to read in the family room off the kitchen. In fact, I’m reading in the living room after turning off the TV. I find the space quite cozy and comfortable. Right now the family room has big glass doors that are awaiting pull down shades, so at night they are open and dark and I feel very exposed when sitting there. Maybe when the new shades arrive on May 1 I’ll change my mind.
Fun to be able to choose.
Some of you have asked for pics of my new space, which I’ll provide over the next few days. This is really a lovely home, and it doesn’t feel too large for one person. It feels just right.
If you saw the pics of my Belltown apartment, you’ll recognize the furniture, rugs, and art work. Nothing really new, but it all looks different in the new space.
