I climbed up (and down!) this staircase…during a recent visit to the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont.
It is located inside the Electra Havemeyer Webb Memorial Building. Named after the museum’s founder. The building is a recreation of 6 rooms from Mrs. Webb’s 1930’s Park Avenue apartment in New York City. Complete with her collection of French Impressionist paintings and unique furniture.
Electra Havemeyer Webb founded the Shelburne Museum in 1947. This building was completed in 1967.
How hard it is to escape from places! However carefully one goes, they hold you — you leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences, little rags and shreds of your very life.
And so it goes.
The places that define you.
House you. Comfort you.
Where you play. Where you learn.
Where you work. Where you love.
Climb. Fall. Get up. Explore.
Ones that remain
Ones you enjoy
All add up.
To the next.
One year ago today I published my first post on this blog.
I had recently moved to a new home. For the first time, I had a small room of my own. Complete with windows to let the sun shine in.
A new place to write. Reflect. Remember. Read. Share. Plan. Challenge.
And the best part?
…meeting other writers across the world in blogging land.
