‘Arella’s House’ | Inside Voice 3


Lauren Ziemski reads her beautiful essay about growing up next to her cranky elderly neighbor ‘Arella’ who unknowingly taught her valuable life lessons.

Hello! I am Lauren Ziemski, and I write. I also collect typewriters. I write about them at thecarriagereturn.com. I had a baby in September of 2014 and she’s the coolest. Sometimes I write about her, and sometimes I write about not-her. Mostly I write because if I don’t, I’ll go mad. My head is always full of stuff, so I need to get it out somehow. This blog seems as good an outlet as any. I like all the normal stuff people like: gardening, cooking, crafting, blah blah blah. I also like antique shopping and sorting paper. So there you have it.

So, my ma says, “Why’dya have to go and cut your shoes in half?” 

So I says, I says, “MA!  Whaddya mean?!?  They didn’t fit!  So I cut about an inch out and glued ’em back together”.
