Flipped through the book and landed on page 98 which really made me want to step into the book!
Morton’s library is what I dreamed libraries should look like when I was a little kid: nothing like the shabby bookshelves at my underfunded primary school. All three facing walls are decorated with floor-to-ceiling windows. Each has a “reading nook” built in and they are punctuated throughout with bookshelves that soar up to the high celling. The ceiling is a work of art itself, all original beams and plaster ceiling roses. They even have those massive ladders on wheels so you can get to the books right at the top – I swear I will have my Beauty and the Beast moment before I leave.

The news that a woman had died three days before our arrival was quite worrying for Mummy. We had come to Wellspring Hotel & Spa for healing and serenity, not to learn that a previous visitor has departed for the Great Unknown. Hector and I did our best to empathize with Mummy’s fears, but, truthfully, we were very much intrigued.

The flash from the camera lights up my face. The officer tells me to turn. To hold the sign a little higher.
There used to be so much to prepare before I stepped in front of a camera. The right outfit, flattering and fashionable – but without appearing as if I cared about those things – and no visible logos, unless they’ve been paid for in advance. The right angle – determined through a series of test shots before-hand. The right lighting – I’d position myself 45 degrees from a window for natural light without the risk of being backlit, then prop up reflective boards to make sure both sides of my face were evenly bright, and of course, no shoot was ready without setting up my two-hundred-dollar ring light.
It was all about curating the right image: desirable, inimitable, unattainable, yet somehow still approachable. It was a balancing act so complicated that of course it required extensive preparation.
But I don’t get to do any of these things before my mug shot.
