A Writer's Desk



Black and white photo by Barbara McKenzie, circa 1960's, while shooting for her book about Flannery O'Connor's south. Her book was recently re-released by the University of Georgia Press. She was kind enough to dig this photo out of her archives, sign it and give it to Wesley.  The little girl was preaching in a small rural Georgia church. Typewriter found in an Asheboro antique store while shopping with my friend and blogger Meredith/ Whynot Pottery. It creates screenplays now. Tea bowl by Hollis Engley, gifted to Wes while we were in Cape Cod, it leaked and he sent another, but this one holds treasured pens. Lots of connections to my friends on this desk....

Honest, beautiful items which keep one grounded, and surrounded with the gift of friendship... the glue of life.

She will do great things.
That day when she found the typewriter was a great day.

Nothing better than being surrounded by good stories and connections.
