Insisting. A Room. Contentment

Under the heading of Gertrude Stein's notion that "There's no such thing as repetition. Only insistence". . . .

I had plonked myself down on a step to put my running shoes on one morning this week, and the November sun was slanting its way in to make my room gleam quite beautifully. And to show me even more clearly than usual that I. Am. Not. A. Minimalist. In case there was any doubt. . . .

  1. Your room looks so warm and inviting in the early morning sunshine.
    Tuscany sunshine comes to mind...so much beauty in the everyday moments.

    1. Looks as if that may be the last sunshine we see for a while, here on the Coast, with another storm coming in. . . .

  3. Doesn't is sound better to be a "maximalist"?

  4. I will join you in abundance and plenitude. It's all about who owns the language, right?:)?

  5. Is there any particular virtue in being a minimalist? Nature certainly isn't - look at the abundance of sunlight streaming through your windows.

    1. I often admire the hotel-calm zen some achieve in their homes, all quiet neutrals and spacious . . . I just can't do that myself and I love your offer of Nature as a model. I do seem to fit into a rain-forest-lush-fullness model. . . .and for now, at least, that sunlight stream seems to approve. . . thanks!

  6. What a beautiful, homey room! I might never get anything done once parked in front of those windows...

    1. I must say, after having glimpsed views of your rooms, I see some clear aesthetic compatibility between us. . . ;-)

  8. Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Who needs minimalism when one can have beauty, abundance, comfort?

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
