If anybody hasn’t read “The Yellow Wallpaper” by: Charlotte Perkins Gilman, do yourself a favor, and go do it. right now.
I’m going to share with you one of my favorite paragraphs/sections from the story:
“Life is very much more exciting now than it used to be. You see I have something more to expect, to look forward too, to watch. I really do eat better, and am more quiet than I was.
John is so pleased to see me improve! He laughed a little the other day, and said I seemed to be flourishing in spite of my wallpaper.
I turned it off with a laugh. I had no intention of telling him it was because of the wallpaper - he would make fun of me. He might even want to take me away.
I don’t want to leave now until I have found it out. There is a week more, and I think that will be enough.”
