One of my very favorite ladies was at work today. She is a spunky older lady that comes in once a week for a tennis lesson and is always redecorating something in her house. Today she brought in some wallpaper to show that she was using in her bathrooms. I decided that I’m just going to fill the walls of my house with words. That way when people come over they will be so busy reading my house they won’t even notice that I don’t dust…ha!
There will be lots of poetry…ee cummings, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Pablo Neruda, Walt Whitman, Shakespeare. Song lyrics will also be plentiful from artists like Ed Sheeran, Andy Grammar, Aerosmith, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Snow Patrol, Keith Urban, Garth Brooks, Ben Platt. And of course book quotes…”Alice in Wonderland” for sure, the Harry Potter series, Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, the Bronte sisters, AA Milne
I feel like it would be comforting to be surrounded by all those words. All those poets, artists, authors that in some way are like me. That feel like me. Maybe then I would feel less alone. Of course, it would also give visitors a very scary look inside my head…might lead to short visits!
We got our first snow today in MN…so here’s a winter picture 🙂
