Concerning Hygge


“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o’clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without.”
― Thomas de Quincey

    this space is so beautiful, as your space has always been. i love the purity of the white and the pale. i love the sense of possibility. you fret because you want to be settled in yourself, and god how i understand that feeling. but i can tell you one thing, from a restless heart to another – it really is such a beautiful sense of possibility. i never quite know what i will find when i come here. but that isn’t worrying, it is in some strange way steadying – like watching the sea change colour and mood, tide going out, dreams coming in, and knowing no matter how it changes it will always be perfect.

    if i was rich, i’d have you design my own webspace for me. you understand about space for quiet, and gentleness, and you are brave with your smallness in a way i deeply admire. but i am not rich – and anyway, i’d probably have to get you to redesign it every month as my own restless heart turned and turned like the ocean, the wild sky.

    let me just say thank you for possibility. and for the quiet.
