Nuns fret not at the convent's narrow room;
And hermits are contented with their cells.
I confess. The only abbey-style bedroom I've seen is a monk's cell in a monastery museum in France. However, the experience was stunning enough to inspire a similar practice of simplicity at home. My uncluttered bedside table prepares my soul for peaceful, lightly-packed travels into the land of dreams. I like to light a candle before sleep, gaze into the flame, and count the good things of the day.
