I studied literature and read far too much.
I collect old things.
I fell passionately in love with a gorgeous, dark-eyed foreign student and made him settle down in the Western United States with me.
He’s my joy in life, even though I eat more rice than I used to and no longer wear my pretty shoes in the house.
I sing old ballads to myself as I do housework.
I like art history, and studied a bit of that, too.
I’ve filled my house with books, pictures, vintage globes, old doilies and pretty teacups.
