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,
