For some reason today I was driven by a rare but urgent desire to clean the whole house. After hours of dusting, decluttering, and proudly rearranging all my various books and trinkets, I realized maybe this random nesting instinct kicked in as a reaction to my recent travels. Adventuring out into the world is wonderful. So is having a deep connection to one’s home. I don’t normally think of August as a time for coziness, but for today, at least, it is.
