i need a room
Okay, i admit it. i’ve been without a room now for about a year, and when i had one before it was mostly filled with my guests. And at some point i will move back into Tupelo (after a typical complex room shuffle with uncertain dates in it) and i will probably again mostly use it for guests. But it has gotten to the point where i actually have to confess that the carefully crafted alternative to having a room that i cobbled together has crumbled apart.
At first it was easy, Puck was a dual member between Acorn and Twin Oaks and he was unusually generous with his rooms, i could almost always stay in the one he was not in and he travels almost as much as i do. Plus my romantic connections at the time had rooms where i was most welcome to stay the night, most nights. But Puck moved back to Twin Oaks and the fairs season (which he oft traveled during) is over and my on the farms romances have shifted and often the end of the day comes and i dont have a place to sleep.
i am not asking for sympathy, this is totally a situation of my own creation. When i joined Acorn i was very clear i wanted to be a member without a room. i had happily been an Oaker without a room for many months, why would i need one at Acorn?
Well things change. i have a few things which would like there own space, rather than just cluttering up Willows closet in Morningstar. I have this cool new picture which needs a wall to hang on. And i will confess not knowing where i am going to sleep for days on end gets a bit old.
