balancing the books


Happiness is a room lined with books, each of them an old friend and the start of a new daydream.

Being married is
- Abandoning some books in your old room so that the new shelves can also be inhabited by his toy figurines; and
- Forgoing a fancier design for boring no-nonsense shelves because she insists that books are the main thing.

Of course, the 2 (happiness and being married, I mean) need not be mutually exclusive.
