The One-Woman Book Club
I'm Pearl, and welcome to my haphazard and multi-faceted blog... I love DIY ideas, vintage posts (1950's fashion/music is amazing), and anything to do with literature. I also am a fan of some British TV series... Sherlock, Downton Abbey, and (arguably my favorite) Call the Midwife anyone? Running, biking, dance, Taekwondo, and yoga make me happy, and an active lifestyle is my number one obsession. My number two obsession constantly vies for first, and that is writing. Sometimes I'm not even sure of what I think, feel, want, need, love...without writing it down. My aspiration is to be a UN diplomat, and to somehow make the world a better place. Will you join me? Because as long as there are starving children in Africa, I can't justify buying that $200 pair of shoes. As long as there is war overseas, I can't justify getting upset over a chipped nail. As long as there is child abuse, I can't justify buying from the giant corporations that blatantly fund it. I'm not sure how much one person can do, but I plan to push the limits.
let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.
