Have you ever wanted to have a special room all to yourself? One where you could go and escape the wildness of day to day living. For some time now I have thought of just such a room. I have dreamed of how it would look, how it would smell and how it would feel. Here is my perfect room, what would yours be like?
The floor would be covered with a lush moss green carpet that is thickly paddy so that every footstep sinks a good inch into the soft warmth. The ceiling would be a full skylight with a mechanical screen that I could use to operate a canvas of the deepest midnight blue with a constellation cut into the fabric, so that during the day I could have it night or day and so that on starlit nights I could create my own starry sky. Along the outside wall there would be artfully hidden air vents that could be opened on ice days to let in the fresh outside air. On the remaining wall would be an artfully camouflaged door and cabinet. The cabinet would be large enough to contain novels of far off times and places and art supplies as well as writing supplies. The cabinet would also contain a sound system with CD's of relaxing mood music such as nature sounds, harp or flute, classical and new age music. Near the cabinet would be an overstuffed recliner with massage capabilities and a pole lamp that looks like a vine with leaves and wild flowers. Near the pond would be an incense burner to bring the smells of the forest and wild flowers into the room.
Awwwwww, to have my perfect room. Especially on days like today when old age just sneaks up and smacks you right between the eyes. OK, so I am really not that old but boy today I am sure feeling ancient as my children like to call me. Here it is barely 6pm and I have been in my comfy clothes for over an hour. Yes I feel as if I could crawl into my soft bed with a good book and dream away, and who knows I just may do that. I was going to wait to do my grateful for post tomorrow and just put up "My perfect room" post but seeing as how at this moment I am really feeling grateful for Down Time I decided to combine them.
