Firstly, the new weekword! It is history. I know, I know. It seems like such a boring word, especially if you are like me. I fully agree with Jane Austen's character Catherine Morland, when she laments:
"History, real solemn history, I cannot be interested in ... I read it a little as a duty; but it tells me nothing that does not either vex or weary me. The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars and pestilences in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all - it is very tiresome."
But I love personal histories - the story each person has to tell of how they became what they are now. Everything has a history - people, objects, concepts. And of course, what we do right now will become the history of the future. So, all in all, perhaps not quite such a boring word. I would love to see your interpretation of it! A photo, a drawing, a poem, a crafty thing, any creation really. Let me know if you want to play along by leaving a comment on this post, and post it on Friday or the weekend.
Secondly, I was invited (well, actually, I invited myself, and so can you!) to Candace's Second Mad Hatter's Tea Party on October 24th. If you want to go along, drop her a comment. I am busy making myself a magnificent hat. A magnificent hat!!
