Wishcast Wednesday

What do you wish to make room for? - the question posed by Ms. Jamie, at her new digs HERE. [one of the dozens of such bookcases at Chatsworth. A sight which makes Toni drool buckets.]

I wish to make room for reading. I have 57 books, in 3 stacks, of titles I either chose myself or which others I trust have recommended. I miss sitting in the corner of the couch with the curtains open, a cup o'java or tea on the ottoman in front of me, a blankie tucked around my knees, Zoe upside down in my lap or draped around my neck somehow. I want to wear my days of the week socks, too -- get OUT of my studio into the sunny welcome of my living room, and get lost, again, in the magic of books.

what toni wishes for herself I also wish for her too.
I love reading so I understand the wish to make room for it!

Tonia, Love, I came to comment (me to me) to just really commend you for putting this out there. It's been on your mind a long time, and I think you're finally detaching from the _______ (fill in the blank, guilt? whatever) which holds you back from those quiet corner sits, book in hand. Really I can't remember you much without seeing a book nearby, so IT'S OK to leave the studio, the journal, the dishes, the laundry, for this much-needed self time. It's how you replenish, don't forget!

Thanks for your effusive comment on my dreamboard! Very sweet!

I wish more reading time and space for you as well - something I've made a priority for lately myself! So important on many levels!

As Toni wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. The magic of books and all the space in the world.

Oh Toni, I think as usual you're right on the money with this wish of yours! I too, would wish for you no less then what you have wished for, and would add only that I wish others would feel the same. Your blog was such food for thought, that it inspired me to blog on the subject of books and reading, and you!
You are such an interesting, inspiring and thought provokingly talented woman. Hats off to you my friend...Kittie

Fufu-
You know how much I'm struggling with the whole reading thing...if you find your way back to this joy, please make a map for me so I find my way there, too.

As Toni wishes for herself, so I lovingly and with intention wish for her also...
