Yes, Madame Virginia Woolf. Women and their talents are hardly cultivated if the space is not created for them.
And so in this humble abode I share with my family, we carved out a quiet corner that I can rightfully call my own. (The computer area has long been appropriated by Lakay -- a territory constantly challenged by his more tyrannical counterpart)
All it took was the moving of furniture here and there, and the love and cooperation of everyone involved.
an astonishingly welcoming corner in our bedroom, perfect for a struggling Ph.D student who can look out of the window ( not the internet, and not the TV) at every turn of a page.
