[ no. 2 ]

a copy of alice in wonderland
saved from my mother's childhood

not only do i relish the original tenniel illustrations,
it touches me to think how carefully she treated her possessions

they were treasured and revered
not destroyed and tossed aside for something shiny and new

it is the book i am most likely to pull of the shelf and show you
{ when you come visit }
history has its own way of making things beautiful

{ read about this project here }
