Tea and Tales

One of those days when one is grateful for snow and fragrant evergreens... The daylight world is a study in gray this week, and the sky above our heads has a sodden morose demeanor unredeemed by even a moment of sunlight.

On this morning's walk, I passed by the local thrift shop and noticed a pristine hardcover copy of Wendell Berry's gorgeous Jayber Crow for mere pennies, and the happening is a redemption of sorts. This day is being spent curled up in a comfortable corner of the overstuffed sofa with several pots of Darjeeling tea, a reading lamp and one of my favorite books ever - all thoughts of the gray world beyond the window have been banished. Oh, to be able to write like this in my next life...

This sounds positively snooky (my daughters word for cozy). I have a stack of books too. Need to kick a few people out of the house first so I have some peace and quiet. Soon.
