The new Tranquility Corner!

Captain's Log, Stardate 11.16.2007

Captain Caffeine found a new water fountain for me at Goodwill! It was only $7, which is even better!

It has all the things I wanted—a quiet motor, the sound of running water (other fountains had super quiet motors but NO sound of water, which was disappointing), and it’s small enough to fit in my newly revamped Tranquility Corner:

I like the sound of running water (something I discovered when I visited my friend Sharon Hinck in August), so I wanted a fountain to help put me in my creative right-brain writing mode. The candles are there for both ambiance and aromatherapy, and the M&Ms are for ... well, they’re a NECESSITY.

What do you think? What’s in YOUR tranquility corner? And if you don’t have one, why not?


  1. I hadn't thought of having one until I read about yours. Great idea! But, for me, food could not be present. Tea or hot chocolate would be good, but not food.

    I would include a scented candle, tea cup, and Bible. I'd probably include a devotion book and maybe a writing how-to book (like Bird by Bird.)

    Then, I could use it for my inspiration corner for both creativity and spirituality.

    I think I'll do this in January. As soon as the tree comes down, I'll have space to set it up. (No, the Christmas tree isn't up yet - just thinking ahead.)

  2. I LOVE that you have M&M's in your tranquility corner!

    Mine has... um... well, I don't have one. Do I need to add this to my to-do list?

  3. I don't have a tranquility corner because there's no room. How's that? LOL

    M&Ms are EVIL. No one told me how easy it was to gain weight post surgery, well especially when you eat things like M&Ms.

    I'm doing a new type of resolution, diet through the holidays and that way I can start my New Year guilt free. And hopefully looking fab just in case of a visitor in January. ;)

  4. Looks great the big question is....dark or milk chocolate M&M's? ;)
