I am very happy to introduce a guest contributor to this space, my lovely friend Sierra. She will be talking about one of her favorite subjects, books, and I will be providing a mood board of sorts (see above) to go along with her writing. Up first, Sierra talks about Wuthering Heights:
Long before modern-day love stories like “The Notebook” and “Twilight” there was “Wuthering Heights.” While some may view it as an outdated, difficult to read piece of fiction, it is a beautiful novel that describes the torments of true love with heart-breaking accuracy.
Through the eyes of Mr. Lockwood, we learn the story of a seemingly mismatched couple that was forced to live without one another despite their unbreakable bond. Few could predict the consequences that would arise as a result of the forced separation of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff Linton. Their bitterness turns to hatred, which ultimately causes them to manipulate the lives and destroy the happiness of everyone else they are close to.
Although “Wuthering Heights” may not end the way that most readers would prefer, it is still a romantic tale of two people who would never truly be without each other.
If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger; I should not seem a part of it. — Catherine, pg. 84
The talented Canadian duo behind string theory say, “The name string theory is borrowed from a theory of physics that says the world is made of vibrating strings. Essentially, we are interested in how our world comes together and falls apart and the patterns that occur in the process.”
Damn. I shoulda paid more attention in physics. Maybe then I’d be talented enough to make some beautiful scarves and throws like the ones above.
I am putting together some wedding announcements to send to my peeps since, as they put it, we ran off and got hitched. We got our cards printed by pinhole press and let me tell ya, they do some good work, I am so pleased! I can’t wait to order from them again in the future. The fetching stamp you see here is from the lovely ladies at our paper shop. I can’t wait to send these pretties out in the mail!
