In reference to my writing house, I have mentioned to a few friends that I have been intrigued by the writing house of William Carlos Williams. I woke up this morning and realized it is not Williams I meant, but George Bernard Shaw! (link to his writing hut above) Forgive the confusion. Maybe it is the paint fumes . . . It is George Bernard Shaw's rotating writing house that I find so cool. Mine does not rotate, but it has a large window on each of 3 sides and soon it will have electricity, so I should get plenty of light. Hopefully we'll get the replacement window installed this weekend so I can finish painting and install a small heater. The books have taken over the house. They and I need a dedicated space.
A favorite quote:
"People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it."
George Bernard Shaw
This is also a favorite quote of my lovely friend Annette.
My poems have appeared in Dusie, Dogwood, The Pittsburgh Quarterly, Poetry Midwest, Moxie, Mind the Gap, the WTTW Chicago program "Arts Across Illinois" and other venues. I'm also an installation & book artist, a lecturer on typography & design, a proud mother and co-owner of an art studio. For many years I have been an activist for public art and the intelligent, apt use of form and language in public and private life. This space is for random thoughts and findings.
