#SoCS – Where?

Stream of Consciousness

Where am I going this coming week?

I’ll give you some hints.

This was the home of three famous female authors, all siblings, who all wrote initially under male pen names as women had no recognition as writers at the time they published their first book. The three siblings had two other female siblings who both died of TB as children and a brother who became addicted to alcohol and opiates. In this place you will find artifacts from this family including tiny books which they made from all sorts of scrap paper including wallpaper, paper that came wrapped around packages or newspapers, sheet music, sugar wrappers and other packaging. These are the items I particularly want to see.

Then we are going on to see the home of a rather famous English writer, illustrator, natural scientist and conservationist best known for her children’s books featuring animals. This female writer wrote thirty books of which twenty three were for children. My favourite of her books is Two Bad Mice which features Hunca Munca and Tom Thumb.

I am then going to visit the house of Robert Burns, the famous poet, who died of rheumatic fever at the age of 37 years old. I am also going to see fellow blogger, Mary Smith, who lives in this interesting town.

Where will I be?

  1. Found you from Kaylaann’s Block Party this weekend but I see we participate in the #SoCS too. How fun your trip sounds! That sounds like a lot of picture taking and memory making to me. Have a great time! Janet

      1. I’m happy for you, Robbie. I don’t know when we’ll get to go there. Our next trip will be in Norway and Sweden area.
        I’m taking it easy for the summer and watching my granddaughter right now.
        We’ll take a short cruise in September and go to Maui in October.

    1. Thank you, Michael. The history of mankind is a journey and we are constantly moving forward and making new discoveries. I am fortunate to live in an age of equality for many women although there are still many that are not are lucky. Have a great week, Michael.
