Be inspired at the home of African American writer Paul Laurence Dunbar who achieved international renown during his short lifetime. Maya Angelou was greatly influenced by his writing and used a line from his poem, Sympathy, as the title of one of her most well-known works. See if you recognize it from this stanza which Dunbar wrote in 1899: "I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore,
When he beats his bars and would be free;
It is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core,
But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings -
I know why the caged bird sings. #paullaurencedunbar #africanamerican #africanamericanwriter #poet #iknowwhythecagedbirdsings #poetsofinstagram #mayaangelou #paullaurencedunbarhouse #vintagehouse #historichouse #dayton #ohio #daytonohio #americanwriter #roadtripping #wanderlust #literarytravel

I arrived at @dumbartonhouse this morning while it was still dark out. In the midst of me running around, setting up tables, dealing with a power outage, and getting things all set for a meeting, I was still able to take a moment and watch the sun rise. What a beautiful day it’s going to be!

POOL HOUSE, Houston,Texas, designed by revered designer Bruce Budd @bruce__budd. I love lots about this room from the high domed glass ceiling to the symmetry on the end wall. Mad for the restrained but punchy colour palette of deep coral and chalky white, altogether a simple but very sophisticated and stylish end result. Repost from @bruce__budd

Just getting around to posting the backlog of pics from my visit to Lowther a couple of weeks ago. What a place. Beautiful, romantic and dramatic with a fascinating history. Abandoned in 1935, the vast and once elaborate gardens within gardens are currently being restored and the master plan created by Dan Pearson will "reconnect Lowther to the surrounding landscape while at the same time giving perspective to the historic gardens". Work began in 2011 and continues, slowly clearing away years of neglect. The restoration will take many years as the plan is to allow the garden to mature and grow slowly. I am so looking forward to watching this garden come to life once more #retrogram #oneortwomoretogo

The Thursby House at the Blue Spring Landing was built by Louis Thursby in 1872 atop a Precolumbian Indian midden. The landing provided an important shipping point which used by both the St. John River steamboats and the railroad.
