Home, Ideals


An older gentleman friend once came to dinner. It’s always fun to have someone tell you they’re comfortable in your home, so I’ve not forgotten his musing about the masculine touches he said were grounding to him. I do love eclectic style and neutrals, and I’m sensitive usually to whether the fragrance of a candle or type and arrangement of flowers will appeal to both Venus and Mars.

Recently I walked into J.’s office to find that he placed the five cloches on his desktop and had work files organized under them to stage, push, celebrate, evaluate and persist. Pretty fun to see.

This morning I walked in to find flags grounded in Masters green replacing the cloches on his desktop. The Masters Tournament begins Thursday. Pretty fun to see.
