Brock and I installed a shelf above the doorway between the kitchen and bedroom months ago. We planned its use for plants. The plants never gathered enough light to fulfill a healthy existence. After they died we had an empty white shelf hovering above us—lonesome.

The books help divide the room even more. It’s quite pleasant to have books look down happily upon us.

More to come on this Studio Saga. Here’s a sampling the mess to tame:
