"Joy is not in things; it is in us." - Richard Wagner
Welcome! Do come in, wipe your feet on the mat as you do. I can take your hats and coats. Please, don't hesitate; the tour has just begun.
Note the book that sits on the platform directly in front of you as you enter. See it's suede front, spine, and backing? Feel it's crisp yellow pages, with pressed flowers and scribbles of written word? Yes, this in fact, are the musings of myself, Meghan.
Feel free to graze your fingers along the encrypted gold title, thumb through the pages of my ideas, stories, musings and gestures of life, the universe, or even the trivial things. Take advantage of the comfort in the many couches around you, let yourself sink into their plush cushions. Breathe in the sweet smell of charming black cherry candles, polished wood floor, and brewing coffee. Enjoy the small sounds of laughter outside on the streets, the small jingle of a bike messenger, and light music wafting from the record player in the corner.
Now, turn your eyes downward, as you hold the book. Be gentle with it. Cradle it, carefully, between your hands. Open, be invited in.
