20 DAY CELEBRITY PHOTO CHALLENGE - DAY NINETEEN
I’ve been awfully cavalier with this challenge and, I’m sorry. Besides, I don’t really know whose house I’d like to take a tour of. Maybe I’ll visit Graceland someday, but in fact, I’d rather see places where Hemingway and Faulkner lived. I’d visit Tennessee Williams’ house, and Truman Capote’s, and Harper Lee’s, and Eudora Welty’s, and Flannery O’Connor’s. And W.E.B Du Bois’. And Francis Scott and Zelda Fitzgrerald’s place in New York. And Norman Mailer’s. And now that it’s finally open to the public, I want to visit Greenway: Agatha Christie’s house in the Devon. I’ve already seen the beautiful gardens, but I want to walk in the room where she penned Death on the Nile. So, I guess I know: I want to see the places where my favorite authors have let their creative brains function, where they have invented wonderful tales to tell, where they have suffered writer’s block, where they have lived and loved and had terribly heated arguments and amazing sex, where they have been happy and sad, and where they have grown old (or not).
