Writing Toward Home by Georgia Heard “…a place steeped in creative energy and harmony.” “Feng Shui is intertwined with the Chinese idea of ch’i or ‘life force’.”
There are primarily 3 places, spaces in and around my home that I find have the balance and harmony required for my getting words on the page.
1. My home office with its grayish-green walls, towering bookcases, and random (not-so-random) clutter.
2. The right side, the right cushion of “my” oversized couch. My pillow, borrowed from the downstairs guest room, and my silk blanket lay in that space when I am not there. They are a constant reminder of the coziness and comfiness I experience when I plant my butt in that space to write. (Naps may or may not happen on occasion on “my” couch, also.)
3. There are times, when Texas is not located directly next to the sun, in which I will spend some time on my back patio, enjoying the sights and sounds of nature while I write.
Maybe, once Coronavirus is no longer a thing (if ever), I can add more places and spaces of balance and harmony to this list.
