Phones are prohibited. Email is outlawed. There is no agenda.
The purpose of this space is escape. Reading, thinking, and napping are encouraged. Mugs of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate are permitted, as is the occasional cookie. There is always a blanket or quilt available for cozy covering.
The schedule for use is not set in stone, but mostly on afternoons, I wind up here, on the loveseat beneath the window in our bedroom, where the golden winter light angles across the pages of my favorite book.
Without great solitude no serious work is possible. –Pablo Picasso
