Hey I like the pasty face white girl rendition...I thought Emily always wore white and carried a candle ( or is that Florence Nightengale with a lamp in the study with the candle stick....I get confused )
Hey Daisy, Thanks for your visit! I read that about Emily Dickinson too - about the white clothing (I had not heard about the candle stick). I based my costume on the one photograph out there of Emily - probably taken before she began her reclusive years. I think when you are dead, people who are alive, see you as the most prominent past image they have in their minds. So if we both actually saw a dead poet, you would see him/her differently than I would, if our memory or imagining of that poet was different. Who knows, maybe different people saw me different ways? Maybe I was wearing white in some people's eyes. Anyway, they gave me the prize for best costume. That was a real honour!mp
Hey I look much more like Emily Carr in that photo. She must have done some poetry too? Must look. Dorothy Livesay wrote about "The Three Emilys" & so did I, unbeknownst. It's one of my short ones. THE EMILYSthere have been three EmilysBronte Carr Dickinson separated by time an ocean a continent sisters stillFranci Louann firstname.lastname@example.org 1970’sI saw Dorothy Livesay’s poem on this topic much later.Dortohy used that plural for Emilys...Wow you had 200 trick-or-treaters? I stand in awe, we had one...I'm trying to copy the photo here, no luck...
