The Little Desk That Could

...and tales from the typewriter...

I'd like you to meet

(the wind picked her up and she landed in my path)


..the retro orange typewriter.

Dorothy has such heart.
Every scratch,
and broken handle
has so much to tell
of her long
adventurous life.

And sweet little Ophelia.
Your presence in my home
and the clickity-clack
of your creamy bakelite keys
makes my heart skip a beat.
You will write many tales
and thank-yous
to the lovely people I meet
and greet
through the humble
little gems that I so dearly
love to create.

What new addition to your home has you
dancing in circles,
and whistling,
and singing songs?

xx  All my love  xx
