I didn't know you had names for all those items Jade. Any stories behind the names?
Well, Joel the typewriter was partly named after the guy in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and partly after one of my literary confidantes. Maggie Edith the bicycle was so named because I decided I really liked the name Maggie after listening to Bob Dylan’s “Maggie’s Farm” a lot, and because it was Grandma’s bike and her middle name was Edith. The guitar is called Wingfield after the Wingfield family in my favourite play, Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie. And now the fish owl in my stitchery is named Shan because Shan, in Chinese, means mountain water, and according to my name book means something like “of the river.” Which seemed appropriate for a -fish- owl.
