October prompt for today “red velvet.” My mind goes, “What can be unusual about red velvet? My doll in the red velvet dress? My granddaughter twirling so beautifully in her red velvet skirt? No. Okay, how about red velvet cake, how it soothes my senses? No.
Go to google and see what else might awake the muse. Must be Victorian something – chairs, couches, pictures, wine, rugs?
Humm, what’s this? Red Velvet Bible (1885), online. I’m hooked!
It’s about 150 pages long so I’ll have to report back sometime. I read the first chapter involving two characters. One a distinguished gentlemen buying a gift for a little girl; the other a destitute girl buying a Bible for her brother who is setting sail that day. The story line will follow one of the Bibles, or both, I don’t know yet. Well I will go on the journey with it.
If you would like to follow the Bible and me, go to Red Velvet Bible
