Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Life Imitating Art? Or at least the beauty and order of it?

"This is kind of like life. Life is all about balance. Then you just have to step back and take it all in."

Leslie Davis Guccione, on the occasion of rearranging my corner cupboard for the third time. A masterful job that we had stepped back to admire.

I'd removed some of the blue, left all of the silver on one shelf, had the creamer and sugar bowl off kilter. She fixed it.

Leslie also has an amazing ability to look at my writing this way.

It's good to have friends who can put your Stuff in perspective, isn't it?

Perhaps I should start a new career staging for those not moving.

Yes, it is good. And it's so important to rearrange and then to step back and take that look.
