This desk is my “escape zone.”
When I sit on this desk, my family knows not to disturb me, because that is my “me” time when I let my mind wander.
All of us can afford a little corner that belongs to us so that we can be ourselves and day dream.
Life is too wonderful to be bored.
When I feel restless, this is where I am.
I take refuge in my small antique desk that’s filled with beautiful cards, colorful paper, pens, and pencils that I’ve collected from many different places where I’ve traveled.
I have stamps ready for me to dash off a note to my friends.
It is so delightful to feel my fountain pen making a beautiful sound on the card while I am writing.
I enjoy collecting bottles of ink in different colors, blue, red, black, pink and purple. I love the variety of colors.
When I sit to write a card, I use different colored inks depending on my mood so be cautious when I write to you in red ink (wink). It wakes up my senses and gives me a boost of energy; so enjoyable.
I have everything I love on my desk, for instance, a fish bowl that was given to me to hold my pens, that was hand made by a mentally challenged artist, as one of a kind, and I can feel her energy when I touch the bowl.
The tulip flower with bulbs, in feng shui, represents abundance as a “gift that keeps on giving and giving” because they reproduce. I love flowers; when I was a poor refugee, I would walk instead of taking a bus to save bus fare in order to buy one flower stem to light up my studio apartment. Pure joy!
21 Days til the Lunar New Year. I wish you all the best, peace, serenity, happiness, good health and wealth, and most importantly, have a sacred space that you call your own.
Sharing: I always wake up early on Sunday morning, before any members of my family, and I have a full two hours of “me” time to write, to think, and to let my mind wander around the world, and it costs nothing. Do it. You will be very happy. Guaranteed!
