Hello and welcome to the weekend! My three day respite from work is much welcomed and anticipated. I plan to spend it reading, de-cluttering, and unpacking boxes that are still awaiting my attention from the move. Thinking about houses and domesticity led me to this week’s Pryday question:
Which author’s birthplace or home would you like to visit? Or, which one have you visited that you can recommend?
As much as I’d love to visit Haworth Parsonage or Monk’s House, the place I’m most eagerly interested in visiting is The Mount, Edith Wharton’s home in Lenox, Massachusetts.
Wharton was well-known for her passion and talent for interior design and her home illustrates her love for creating beautiful spaces. If ever I’m on the East Coast, The Mount will be on my agenda of places to visit.
Though non-literary, Georgia O’Keeffe’s home, Abiquiu, in New Mexico is also on my wish list to visit some day. It is also much closer to home.
How about you? What literary (or artistic) destinations are calling your name?
