Wednesday, feathers and flappers…


a young woman, especially one who, in the 1920’s,
behaved and dressed in a bold and flaunting unconventional way.

a young bird just learning to fly


Today, I think flapper was a good name for these young women
because like young birds they were learning how to use their feathers
to fly from the nest.

  1. If you had been around in the twenties I bet you would have been a flapper. They liked to dress up and go to fancy places with spirited people who liked spirits. Teddy says mehiow.

  2. What a great word…makes me want to read a little Fitzgerald. Like the part of using their feathers. Missed reading you. Hi Teddy…forgive my absence…just not myself. Like the thought of being a flapper. All that dancing.
