My short list:
1. Healthy food.
2. Enough free time to spend with friends and family.
4. Parmiggiano Reggiano.
5. My office…
…downtown in a converted historic hotel, built before Montana was a state. This is the view looking toward the south window. The patchwork kimono in the window is a handmade, vintage silk piece I acquired for $18. Yes, I know. It should not be hanging in the sun.
This is where I do my work-work. I do my blogging at home. The owner of this building and my friend, the encaustic artist Leslie Van Stavern Millar, makes these small rooms available at cost to local artists and writers. Since my husband works at home, everybody wins if Mom works downtown. Does that make sense??
Here’s a view looking down the hall to the other studios.
And here’s my desk, my computer, and my loud pink water cup.
What can’t you live without?
