Come-As-You-Are Party: Four Horizontal Surfaces
These photos are actually part of a game I'm concocting as a guest blogger on my friend's site, Twas Brillig. You can link there for the rules of the game and play along. (And while you're there, read some of her posts. She is wise, witty and original. She's the one who got me interested in blogging to begin with.)
Right now I'm re-reading a favorite book, The Ladies Auxiliary, and stumbled across this quote that seemed very a propos: "A person's house is like a photograph of themselves."
So here's my come-as-you-are photo compilation (more like a play in four acts): Four Favorite Horizontal Surfaces. A self-portrait.
1. My nightstand. I can't possibly be reading all those books at once. Or can I? Most telling is the one I just added: The Disorganized Mind. :)
2. Upper left corner of my drawing table/desk. Symbols of matter unorganized, creative projects yet to come to fruition. Work in progress.
3. Makeshift game cupboard (some essentials we moved upstairs while we remodel the basement). Note prominence of Scrabble®.
4. My garden. Never mind the scary weeds on the left. This is a living palette that greets me with joy. The Foxgloves (my symbol for perpetually over-crowding my yard and my life) are now more in proportion to the rest of the garden. --Ah, but that's another post!
