The Ending

Today is Friday 26th May 2006
My mirror is on the wall
It is to the right of my computer
So I pass it as I come through the door
I have it hanging, at just the right height
So I can see myself as I pass by
Some might say...."But it's too low"
"Hang it higher"
No I will say "I like it just there"
Where I can see my face as I pass by
I hung it just for me,no one taller or shorter
Just me.

The gold filligree against the cream wall
matches well
And on the small chain
between the picture rail and the top
of my mirror
I have placed a craft made butterfly
Its wings pointing to the sky
Just an added touch !
It's colours don't match ,navy blue and white
Hardly go with gold filligree
I have a can of gold paint
Tomorrow I will take the butterfly
outside and spray him/her

I feel better now my mirror is in my computer room
It is as Heather has said so many times
*A room of my own,a space that is just mine*
A room of my creativity
A room where I gather around me
all I have created,written,collected of others,
Over the past 10 years

My room says to me
Where I have been
Where I have come to,
How far I have travelled,
Where I am going on my journey
A journey without end.

Lucky you Lois...I dream of a "room of my own" but can never get that final child to leave. The minute she does I will be in seventh heaven to be able to have that space...why is it women are the last to get it! So up to then I count everywhere as my own!You should see how often I rearrange things to my own wishes! No consulting! And I have a mermaid in the bedroom until then...Jan

My room is my haven too, although it is frequently invaded by grandchildren, who think the place is some kind of magic kingdom with the candles, tarot cards and bits of art materials lying around.
I love your writing, Lois - this piece really touched a resonant chord in me.

I can affirm that your room is just perfect and I know that this mirror will make all the difference Lois. What a wonderful post darling.
