My Favorite Part: Karen Graffeo

Karen Graffeo, an artist and professor at the University of Montevallo was kind enough to share the favorite part of her home.  Read her beautiful description of why it is her favorite part below.

This is my favorite part of my home, and one of my favorite places on this earth. My tiny yellow kitchen, I draw, eat, sew buttons on jackets, and prepare income taxes in a yellow room on a yellow table. When my father died my friends showed up at this yellow table and sat with me--- when I get good news the open envelopes pile up here--when I get bad news there are those soul friends who have spirit gps and know, just know what showing up means. This room is holding my memories and passages like a van Gogh yellow sanctuary.
