I have a picture of my dream house in mind: Craftsman style, blue siding or red brick, steps leading up to a wide front porch, built-in bookshelves, and my writing desk positioned near a bay window. This kind of house does not exist in the neighborhood where I currently choose to live.
But we rearranged our furniture this summer and I realized that my current home already has a bay window. It’s not the most obvious room for a writing desk, but now I can’t imagine the desk anywhere else.
Sometimes you already have a version of a future dream. You just have to notice it.
