Where’s my Slice of heaven? Perfect Place?

In my list, a recurring theme was nature. It’s relaxing, inspiring, amazing, & the best design model there is! Everywhere I look in the woods is life & efficient design – there is no waste in nature.

There are also no re-runs in nature: I had a top floor apartment for years, & I’d sit on the balcony every evening after work & watch the sky. Even if there were no clouds, there were jet contrails, birds & bugs.

The cool things about nature is that it is everywhere, whether I’m in Amsterdam, at the coast or home in Raleigh. We have hawks & snakes & raccoons & all kinds of spiders in town, too.

A Very Close Second Place

My happy place is making something. Anything:

  • a meal,
  • a travel itinerary,
  • a design concept,
  • a Halloween costume,
  • a piece of furniture.

Behold, yours truly (in a way too big apron) holding the frame for our modern farm table while my partner in crime welds.

And about a billion other places

  • watching football with a cat in my lap,
  • chocolate,
  • live music,
  • parades
  • well worn pubs with wood tables, low ceilings, and regulars

I am a diamond: I have many facets.  :D For more interesting posts on this round of BlogOff, check out the Let’s BlogOff site:
