A Sense of Harmony
After having asked my friend, Holly Scheve, to write some thoughts on “Design and Mirrors” for my December blog … I have invited her to be our guest writer for Bishop and Company. She and I have been close friends for many years and we are truly soul mates in our creative interests. I am passionate about the artistic side of design; having an idea and seeing it come to fruition in a physical sense. Holly has an eye for beauty and details. She is a gifted writer that loves describing one’s response to design … so we will be working in a collaborative way throughout the year. I feel so blessed to call Holly my friend and now our wordsmith for Bishop and Company.
“I find nothing better than curling up in my favorite chair with a good book. Whether early in the morning as I’m having that first cup of coffee, or later that evening, when I’m winding down with a glass of wine … the contentment of these moments is palpable. I can be totally engrossed in a book and inadvertently glance up and find myself savoring the moment … liking where I am, sometimes finding my eye resting on a favorite treasure that may trigger a memory. And these memories are in themselves, stories. They are the stories of our lives; our family, our home and how it all came together … from the lowliest childhood creation to a valued piece of art that was a big splurge at a certain point in time. The “treasure” itself is not so much in its “being” as in the people, place and time that were a part of its acquisition … and I find that this all works together for a sense of harmony.
The moment passes, I return to my book, but with a sense of appreciation that I am nestled in my favorite chair surrounded by the people and things that I love.”
