Converse with my Converse…

What if you could meet and have a conversation with anyone past or present?  Who would you most want to meet?  What would you talk about?  Would you fan girl?  Here are a few people who are on my list.  I have thought long and hard about this, I urge everyone to do the same.

My maternal Grandmother Mary Alice, she died when my Mother was a child.  I grew up hearing wonderful things about her, and being told that we would have been the best of friends.  There is a lifetime full of questions I have for her, given the chance I wouldn’t hold back.

Coco Chanel – Fashion has always been a very important part of my life, why not go to the source of womenswear and the icon who made fashion what it is today.  I think we’d bond over our affinity for black and white, and maybe we could have croissants and cafe au lait.

Lana Del Rey – One of my favourite singers.  I think from the moment I heard Born To Die I knew she has felt just like I have.  Only she had the balls to share her experiences and not care what other people might have thought about her.  I think our conversation would range in such a variety of topics.  Whether it’s literature, science, music, or fashion.

Benjamin Franklin – BF has always been my favourite founding father.  He has accomplished so much, he’s even on the highest circulated form of paper currency in America.  I would love to learn more about his life and hear his take on everything that is happening here in America and the world.

William Shakespeare –  A man I have long admired.  From the first time I read one of his works, A Mid Summer Night’s Dream I fell in love.  He was a true wordsmith, often creating words to fit what he was trying to portray.  And while no one in my time will ever truly know if it was him or not.  I can still dream.

I tried to keep the list pretty short.  Of course there are many more throughout history that I would love to meet, but I can’t possibly ever speak with who I’ve listed.  And on that note, it’s time to end.

All for now,
