A Mouse In The House

by haikuhouse

I have no reason to believe there are little mice scurrying around the house while we are fast asleep at night…

But as I was taking that first photo, I felt as though I was looking at these objects from a different perspective; One of something much smaller. 

The space we live in, is evolving based upon truths uncovered & connections made between the past/present/future. 

As time goes on, I will be able to elaborate on these ideas more.

I feel blessed because it is becoming a sacred place for me, the individual. It’s not perfect & it’s chaotically cluttered in certain places but there is this spiritual collaboration happening that can’t be rushed or pushed. It’s not an easy process but it’s a beautiful one that is worth the wait…It’s the graceful growth of an individual & her house.  

So far the visual result has been a rich homage to nature, color, light, the heritage of our descendants & a reflection of the soul. These things make a beautiful home.

Of course…my oriental cloissone vase, pottery pieces, our window treatments & sectional are beautiful objects to apprecitate but I’m constantly reminded of the individual who doesn’t have these things….How do they create a peaceful place that is pleasing to the senses? How do they attain this sort of enlightening environment? 

The key is being happy & content in whatever situation you are currently in…Not wanting what another person has, but making the best of it with what you have. 

It doesn’t take a lot of money to create a beautiful space either. Some of my favorite pieces are just really good finds from Goodwill & garage sales. Then of course there are the family heirlooms…

Honestly though, the less you have the better off you are anyways…Just find your true identity & know there is no end to becoming who you were meant to be…It’s a thrilling & wild ride. 

There is always room for growth & your surroundings will only reflect that.

Make it beautiful & make it meaningful.

Peace & blessings to all,
