I have a bench.
I have a view.
I have quiet.
I have the blessings of space and a mind that wishes to be explored as I write, write, write.
And I have — as I noticed when I took this photo — a few of my favorite things.
- A writing pad.
- A bright-colored Energel pen.
- A glass bowl (filled and ready), a personally decorated (read: stickered) lighter and some waxed hemp string.
- A metal mug and something tepid to drink. (Yeah, I said tepid.)
- Mosquito spray.
- Benadryl itch cream.
- A fine-weave wool blanket.
Maybe it’s a bit of a stretch to call all these some of “my favorite things,” but they are certainly some mighty useful things.
Tips for an orderly life: Gather what you need to set your flow space space … and if you’re outside during mosquito season, remember to bring your mosquito spray and anti-itch gel!
