I transcribed one of Sean’s goodnight stories onto a gold dress in gold ink:
“‘A book? I love books. How delightful.’ Said the Queen.” – so goes Sean’s delightful adult fairy tale. It’s one of my very favorite stories of Sean’s, but the next night he topped it with an even better goodnight story. Like penning gold over gold.
In the daylight the words on the gown are obvious, but at night they disappear into the sheen and I fear the ink has dissolved. I’d love a golden nightdress that bears new stories every morning when I awaken, as if a silent scribe had scribbled his calligraphic ribbon around and around me as I slept.
Stories are the best embellishment.
