True love

Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.

I love the details that makes a house a home. I love it when someone new moves into a room, apartment or house you once knew and they occupy the space in a completely new and original way. I love visiting someone you adore and sitting in their space and realising you love them even more because everything in their space is just how you imagined it would be. I love the way my best friend can occupy any space and turn it into a airy spacious bright beautifully scented piece of existence. I love the way Japanese people decorate their houses in such a balanced and natural way and how there is always an array of spectacular pot plants. I love living in an apartment by myself and coming home every day to a place that is mine and mine alone.

Saturday night in

I'm trying VERY hard to remember the Japanese syllabary but alas my brain is a sieve. I've spent tonight drawing the entire alphabet with an array of characters with the hopes that maybe maybe I will remember something.
