the angled ceiling of a tiny enclosed porch.  windows swing open on either side of a slamming door that never quite latches.  there is room for a chair and a table and a pile of books.  lavender hanging in dusty clutches.  aluminum buckets, dull and hollow from decades of sun and water.  the floor is worn.  this is the room i settle in the evenings for the transition from summer to winter.  it's my autumn room.

  7. What a cozy little room! I would love to have a room like this to visit welcoming the transition of the various seasons.

    My parents had a chair just like the one in your room...I loved it.
