The Last Several Hours...

September 30th, 2006 (06:05 pm)
current song: Last Hour - Elliott Smith

I have spent working on my Space and my Study, instead of sleeping.

The shelves are columned up now, three towers full of books and journals...
I got my desk/table out of the garage, put it up beneath the window...
Placed my little black chair beneath it.

Unloaded boxes and collapsed them, stacked them with the others in the garage...

Pulled the sheets from the futon--stripped the bed and took all of my three sets of
red sheets and black sheets and Kanji scrawled sheets..........sheets sheets and sheets
pillow cases, comforter....

And washed them.

I made the bed up in my favourite set.
RED fitted sheet, Kanji scrawled black sheet, and two solid black pillow cases,
two Kanji pillow cases...and one red one.

(Ben it seems, took the sixth one camping.)

I moved the bed.
Centered it under the North/West window...
My bed is supposed to face South.
(Feng Shui)
It faces South/East now.

Tucked everything in around it, stood back and was pleased.

Compromise....
Not compromised?

I dragged my old cube of a wooden toy-box riddled with skateboard
and travel stickers...
(The box where my most delicate old T-Shirts, Tu-Tu from my 1st grade
ballet recital, my baby blanket, doll great Aunt Dot made me,
and special stuffed animals from the last 4 decades reside...)
into our room, so that the clock has a place to sit now.

Moved my jade coloured little dresser
that Adria and I refinished together 16 years ago...
Under the window the bed was beneath before.

It is very nearly civilised in there now.

It makes more sense...and slowly the mountain of clothes will find themselves
on hangers and in drawers....Must find more drawers!

I put my clean extra sheets in the linen closet.
Nothing had been in there until now...

I have to go to work soon--but I am not dreading it anymore.
I am coming home to a warm bed with clean red sheets
and will wake up...
in the right direction.

My "Mirror of Truth" it seems....got a bit battered in the move.
It will need a little love before I can hang it again...

But it is in my Study now, resting on my desk, against my wall.
I looked into it--I recognized the Girl...looking back at me.
