At last! The library is all but finished. My computer is installed in its new and permanent home. All that is left to do is bring all my writing paraphernalia and of course, the books. The latter I’m savouring for tonight when it will be cooler. For a bibliphile, shelving books in their new home is a serious and contemplative time. I live every one of those books and I plan to enjoy this part of the process.
Looking around me now, as I write this, I feel as if I’ve come home. In the middle of suburbia, in a town with almost two million souls, I have found a place to retreat to, a place of reflection and seclusion, which all writers need.
For now I’m going to celebrate my new library with music. I’ll post photos soon.
