writing for readers 1. old books


note:
i have this wonderful friend who is just as obsessed with poetry as i am. we often text each other randomly to occasionally discuss creativity, poetry, writing, and of course new revelations in our lives. in our last texting conversation, my friend brought up my blog, and she asked about giving me a topic to write about. and i thought the idea of readers requesting topics for me to write about was a great idea! its a win-win really. i get instant inspiration, and readers get something personalized to read. so i am opening up my blog email (which you can find in the contact area of my blog), as a way for you all to request topics for me to write about. 
the first topic is: old books.

this thing called CLASSIC

I have always liked old things. There's a subtle history to them, a hidden mystery that appeals to me. I'm not nostalgic. I'm just someone who admires eras and decades that have left their mark in the closets of grandparents houses, waiting patiently in corners of old bookcases at school. I get that look sometimes. The turn of heads in hallways because I look like I just stepped out of some fuzzy movie and not a photoshopped neon magazine that some prefer, and that's ok with me. Take my picture with a Polaroid or better yet, one of my Brownies, they come out better anyway.
If you are a fellow vintage collector, or just plain curious, you may be wondering where I get all these old things. Here's how.
