A fellow writing friend has posted a new piece on the website Divine Caroline. I thought it was quite lovely and present a teaser here. Enjoy!

Renoir, Woman with Guitar

I have always had a love for antique things. There is a mystery and romance about objects that have lived through lifetimes past. The stories they could tell! My grandmother’s house was a treasure box of ancient artifacts; my favorite was a beautifully flowered, upholstered Victorian Ladies Chair. The chair’s sculptured wooden frame and delicately embroidered cushioned seat seemed like something that queens and fine ladies of fortune would have called their own. To be in possession of such exquisite inheritance is nothing short of thrilling.
