The family table

A week or so after the holiday, and we are still loving our table (thanks again, Ken!). Obviously it's great for a bit of breakfast, unfurling the newspaper, or doing a puzzle. But I find what I enjoy most is having a place to sit that's away from the television, from which I can look out on this spacious studio apartment and see the sofa, the pictures on the walls, the (sorta still-) color-coded bookshelf, the kitten going wild for his unexpected favorite toy, and, if it's early enough, Kelley asleep all splayed out; a place from which I can take measure of the wonderful changes of the past few years, and daydream about what's to come; a place from which I can see Home.
