I don't miss school. I really don't. I do, however, miss the beauty of ivy-covered buildings, the sense of possibility embodied by rows and rows of unread books, new scribblers, and carefully sharpened pencils, the pleasures of preparing the first day of school outfit. Yes, the IDEA of academic life will always be a siren song to me, though I still have no plans to go back to teaching or learning in a formal scholarly way. Playing school in the backyard against the backdrop of the unruly ivy growing on my fence with fallen crabapples underfoot was pretty darn fun ;) Speaking of siren songs, I acquired this 30s deco plaid dress for my shop but it seems to want to stay with me...at least for now. More goodies will be added soon, though, including more than one 30s dress (can't hoard 'em all).
