This picture from Country Homes and Interiors has all that I want from life on any given afternoon (around 4PM, tea time to be precise). A comfortable and pretty chair, a cup of tea, a book or two (or three). Everything else is unnecessary. What do you say?
(I get occasional emails asking me what books I am currently reading and I love hearing from people suggesting titles for me. To all those readers: I am reading The Emperor of All Maladies, A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee. Unputdownable, poetic and compassionate.)
