Lea Wait, here! Over the years lots of people have asked me what was in my study. (A crystal ball? A rabbit’s foot?)
Actually, in addition to books and papers I’m actually using on a day-to-day basis, I do have a lot of memories tucked into various corners of my study. There’s the picture of my husband and I dancing in a Paris Street. An antique print of a Great Blue Heron. A button that reads, “STET, DAMMIT!” on my bulletin board. And a lot more. So, today, come with me on a tour … welcome to where I spend most of my days – and some of my nights~!
