There's a London phone booth sitting in the doorway. This is where she keeps her DVDs. And her reading lamp. Her reading lamp is from Peter Pan, but she never turns the light on because there are lights built into the ceiling. There are suitcases from the early 20th century filled with nothing. And candle shrines, sparkling bottles filled with lights. Magic wands and remote controls. 5 guitars that shine abalone. Percussion and piano. Her finest purchase is a cheeseboard that she uses for everything but cheese. These are the things my sister collects in her bedroom. These are the things that make her bedroom my favorite home away from home.

  1. I love this! Your diction is so musical. The words have a cadence. You could have put everything into three long sentences, but the way you break it up gives it percussiveness and poignancy. And SO visual. Thumbs up! More please!
