Imagine you’re strolling down familiar streets in a familiar city, but then you turn a corner, and suddenly you find yourself face to face with the perfect little shop. How could you not have known about it before? This shop contains what you love best. Maybe it’s old books. Musical instruments. Pottery or paintings or glassworks by local artists. Coffee or pastries or fine wine. Maybe there’s a poetry reading or an impromptu concert or all of the above, but the point is what you feel — the joy, the delight, the sense of wonder — when you walk through the door. It’s like finding buried treasure.
It’s like coming home.
Won’t you come, slip around the corner with me, and meet Emily Wierenga? At her bidding, words sing and colors dance. The door stands open for you. Please, make yourself at home.
