But now, thanks to the gradual emptying of the Nest, I have a Room of My Own:
~The Purple Horse Poetry Studio & Music Room~
|view (today!) from the hallway|
|my writing corner (I guess I still like corners!)|
|original art by Anna Wadham|
|original art by Mique Moriuchi (I collect at least one|
original piece from each book... someday I hope these walls
are FILLED with art!)
Why "Purple Horse"?
Because of this piece of art by Tamara Garvey, which I acquired a couple of years ago at a South Street Seaport art shop in New York City.
Because "office" is too stark, and "study" is too pretentious and "library" is too quiet. Artists have studios... musicians do, too... and isn't poetry both art and music?
Why "Poetry," when I write other things as well?
Because Poetry is the love of my life.
Why "Music Room," too?
Because it's in this room that I play my cello. :)
