Off and off the the past year I’ve considered downsizing from my beloved Simmons Beautyrest Marquee king to a full size bed. My thought is that a double bed will free up enough space to give me an expanded sewing corner. The king bed was fine when I was sharing it with kitties and paperwork, but now it’s just big and bulky. As often as I move the furniture around at my place, I’d prefer the extra space.
I thought about buying twin beds and having them in the corner like a sectional couch, then I could have pals stay over and we could separate them. Or for those future wild nights when I might want to push them together. Hmmm… I guess I need to think this through since, whatever I do, I’ll be pre-paving my future experience.
In the meantime, I’m enjoying the furniture arranging. It’s re-routing my neural pathways. Now I need to give some thought as to where I’d like to guide these pathways toward. I’m thinking a double/full bed, my original thought. I’ve got the futon in the living room for friends. I no longer have a houseful of meditation retreatants on weekends.
That’s another thing: when making furniture placement decisions, I no longer have to factor in accomodating seating for a dozen since I no longer hold classes here. I’m so used to through the years having a dozen chairs on hand, a dozen floor pillows and several small tables with chairs set up. The last 15 years I’ve slowly eased up on my schedule and realize I like having to factor in only me. No one else. Only me.
As I ponder that thought, I realize the possibilities are staggering.
