Readers have been asking if Blush: A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World has a sequel.
My honest answer is that I don’t know.
However, this box has been whispering to me. “Come look.”
From out of the stack of albums pictured below, a little voice squeaks: “Play me, Shirley, Shirley bo burley.”
So, I am cautiously approaching the door to the basement.
If you come with me, you have to first open the door that leads downstairs. This is what you’ll see:
A bookcase full of binders full of letters from my college years stands sentry in the corner of the room.
My friend and fellow Mennonite memoirist, Ted Swartz, suggested that I play with the idea of The Box in the Basement as my new blog title and just see what happens week by week as I make my trip to the underground and surface to tell stories.
I’d love to know if you like this idea. Please leave a comment below if you have your own suggestion. A simple yes or no vote would be very helpful.
And, if you have some similar treasures in your basement or attic, please tell!
