Weekly Inspiration: The Yellow Wallpaper
Perhaps it is the Lucky competition that got me thinking about a short story I read in college, The Yellow Wallpaper. After all, it is about a woman's descent into madness, and with all this click-click-clicking, I'm starting to feel a bit mad myself. I love a good short story, and this one has stayed with me over the years because it's so brilliantly written and sort of implants itself in your brain. I found it online, so if you feel like making yourself a bit crazy too, read it here.
There are a lot of blog posts and paintings inspired by the story. This post has some great images of rather attractive yellow wallpaper. Of course, after reading this story, I have a feeling you won't be considering yellow wallpaper for your home any time soon...
Meanwhile, the madness continues. Vote for us, if you dare!
