These truly ARE the voices in my head.

Echos




Where is your head lass,
 when you are stitchin?

It is in a time long ago...
in my mind today,
 Tis Downton Abbey that captures me.
Not upstairs...
nay, 
but down.


Not just Downton~
but 
actually more
Hildene...
Robert Todd Lincoln's
estate.
My Great Grandparent's served him
in his fields and house.

The maids and kitchen staff a flutter
 and at the table,
a young maid quickly makes
 tiny repair stitches. 
Her pins on a pinkeep 
made of scrap. 
Perhaps pieces of a uniform, 
long retired from it's obvious task?

I wouldn't be able to create 
in that time.
Life would have been spent with many more needful duties,
and 
creating would have been made in small, 
stolen moments.

I wonder sometimes if my heart held memories, 
over years greater than I.
Could the stars and heavens
 have kept glimpses 
of another era
reflecting
that heart?

Can you tell me about the beautiful background music on your blog? It is so beautiful and soothing.

Thank you for stopping by Lauretta~

The music is indeed beautiful. If you scroll down to the bottom, you will find the video and can see more of the Gothard Sisters. They are truly magical! Quite a few readers have purchased their CD after hearing them here and I am so happy that they have! I wish they lived on the East Coast, I would love to see them.
