38 - Pleasure



This is a place that gives me great pleasure. It is the reading room of my library. It is on the opposite side of the Children's section. It is the "old" part of the library built in 1931. It has a beautiful wood ceiling and pretty windows.



I chose a color of B&W that gives it an antique sort of look and also keeps with the B&W self-portrait theme.


I sit here while my kids search for books. It is quiet, and I love it when the sunlight pours in the windows as I sit in the wing backed chairs. It is not only pleasure, but it is also peace for me.
My favorite memory of this place was when I was going through an incredibly difficult time in 2001, and I sat here all day and read my Bible and prayed and something just lifted. It has always brought me incredible peace to be here because of that memory.

What a great place to get away from it all. I can see why you love it.

Now this picture makes me happy! I can see why you love it there. And I like the sepia tones you chose for the photos.

Oooooooooh, I love those windows. The chairs look so comfy. I would enjoy sitting there too. The B&W highlights the quiet peace.

What a nice space, Carol. It reminds me of our library, in fact ~ high ceilings, lots of windows, but cozy. We don't have that nice wood-beamed ceiling, though, that reflects the age of the building.

Seeing you in your favorite places is fun. I really like the windows and wood-beamed ceiling.
