Why a quiet nook? Probably because I don’t have a quiet nook to even claim as my own right now… I feel like I am always doing something! Whether it’s working, volunteering, hauling children from one place to another… watching a child do something, I am always on the go. I have fantasies about having free time. I tend to guard my free time. A quiet nook also is a reference to a quote by either Oliver Wendell Holmes or Henry Thoreau… a quiet nook with books to read… sounds just perfect doesn’t it.
