James Baldwin wrote it; Heather Garner sewed it (image).

“Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.”

-James Baldwin, from “Giovanni’s Room”


Thank you, Heather, for the beautiful present.


(You can buy Heather’s handcrafts on her etsy site. She might even take embroidery requests!)


And here’s a painting of Baldwin, by Beauford Delaney, that I especially love.



Have you read “Giovanni’s Room” yet? Please do.
