Soup - Describe your living room (furnishings, colors, etc.).
Two bloodred walls, two white. A red papasan chair. A beige leather sofa my mother-in-law gave us. A breakfront with our wine glasses and funky drunken glasses. About half a dozen jars with plant cuttings I got from my grandmother years ago--their roots tangled and visible through the glass. Our office station: a table with printer; fax; postage machine; various pens and pencils and paper clips. A folding table where I work on my laptop. (Weekends we take the table down and voila: a real living room.) About a dozen novena-style candles featuring only female saints. A coffee table my grandfather made for my Aunt back in the '60s and which she gave to us for our wedding. Various Rothko prints and one Diego Rivera print. Various rocks and shells I've collected from Virginia, Colorado, California, Pennsylvania, New York, and Puerto Rico. One large cow bone (a femur) I found on my parents' farm. (Bleached and painted bright white.)

An egg.

Exercise. Reading. Writing.

Little Miss Sunshine.

That's a very thorough description of your living room... as I read it, I felt like I was sitting there with you, having a cup of cha, nosing through your things!

And I love those candles, they're so cool.

I could not live without the National Geographic and "Rock and Gem" though I must agree with you on the reading and writing part, it is an essential part of my daily rituals.
