I Dwell in Possibility

Today, as I'm going through the house discussing with my husband how we might use our space, I see so many things that I keep because of what they might become.  Like the dried gourds on top of my bookcase, or a 1962 "Occupations" puzzle with great graphics.  Then the poem by Emily Dickinson comes to mind...
I Dwell in Possibility 
I dwell in Possibility --
A fairer House than Prose --
More numerous of Windows --
Superior -- for Doors --

Of Chambers as the Cedars --
Impregnable of Eye --
And for an Everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky --

Of Visitors -- the fairest --
For Occupation -- This --
The spreading wide of narrow Hands
To gather Paradise --
