creature comforts

  • a stack of library books
  • an oversized mug filled to the brim with just-the-right temperature coffee
  • bottles of wine tucked in the refrigerator for safe keeping
  • three candles burning at the same time, in different rooms
  • anticipation of the first snow fall
  • the sound of music coming from the record player while I clean
  • fuzzy socks to put on just before bed
  • a pile of blankets to hide under
  • the presence of someone without an agenda
